SuperFriend in your workplace
Almost one in two Australians experience mental illness in their lifetime1, and it’s important to recognise the signs of mental illness and how to support your family, friends and colleagues.
What are the impacts of mental illness?
- Mental illness is the biggest barrier to workplace participation and collaboration
- 20% of your colleagues will experience a mental health condition in a year
- 90% of staff think mental health is an important issue for business, but only 50% believe their workplace is mentally healthy1
AustSafe Super has partnered with SuperFriend to help you stay mentally healthy. As a member of AustSafe Super, you have access to support offered by SuperFriend, including various programs which can be implemented at your workplace.
