Add Counting on U to your organisation’s toolkit for optimising workplace mental health

It is expected that almost half of the Australian population will experience a mental health issue during their lifetime[1]. In fact, mental ill-health accounts for Australia’s third highest burden of disease[2], and costs the Australian economy between $43 – $70 billion annually, amongst many other direct and indirect costs[3]. A further $150 billion per year is associated with diminished health and reduced life expectancy for those living with mental ill-health, taking the total cost to approximately $200 – 220 billion per year[4].

On the flip side, organisations with systems in place to support their employees’ wellbeing have lower turnover, higher productivity, and lower healthcare costs, according to multiple studies.

Our team can help you design and implement evidence-backed solutions for your workplace wellbeing needs.

“Supporting others with mental health issues can be confronting. The Counting on U program pushed me outside my comfort zone by forcing me to consider the impact of mental health problems, and how I could be an effective first aider in this space.

The resources provided before the sessions were excellent. I particularly found the videos based on people’s real-life experiences to be very valuable in understanding different perspectives, and the role plays increased my comfort level of speaking to others about mental health.”
