How to navigate the role of support person for a business owner who is experiencing mental ill-health.
Over the past few years, small business has been doing it tough, often due to issues beyond their control, such as COVID-19, floods and bushfires.
These recent challenges have impacted businesses, and they have also impacted the people who own, run and work in these businesses.
The Small Business Guides to Mentally Healthy Workplaces provide information about key topics, clear examples, helpful tips and links to further support and guidance.
Everymind, through the Ahead for Business program, developed the new guides as part of the National Workplace Initiative. The Small Business Guides are built around the three core pillars of the Blueprint for Mentally Healthy Workplaces for creating environments that protect, respond to, and promote mental health.
Feedback on the guides can be provided at the National Workplace Initiative’s engagement hub.
