Workplace Mental Health & Wellbeing

This program is designed to enable organisations to support the physical, mental health and emotional wellbeing of their employees. Programs can be tailored to suit objectives and budget and delivered online or face-to-face.

2020 is a challenging year. People are feeling more stressed, burnt out and isolated than ever before – including those who have been working from home for a prolonged period of time. The advent of COVID-19 has required significant changes in workplace practices for both staff and management.

Recent studies by Accenture Research show that:

  • A high proportion of employees struggle with mental health, and they are not receiving enough support from their organisation.
  • About 45% of employees say anxiety or depression is hurting their productivity in the office—at least on occasion—while nearly 1 in 5 employees (18%) say that anxiety or depression interferes with their work all of the time or often.

Workplace Stress: We Can Help

  • When the sympathetic nervous system – our alert system that prepares us to do battle or flee – has been switched ‘on’ for weeks or months, this results in high cortisol levels.
  • Cortisol is diabolical for brain neurons because our alert system is designed for short, sharp physical activity – to escape or fight – and is not designed to be ‘on’ all the time.
  • Brain fog, poor memory, and inability to prioritise or make decisions are all part of high levels of cortisol in the brain. Employees may feel restless, distracted, numb, anxious and/or reactive.
  • Settling down the sympathetic nervous system and, in doing so, activating the parasympathetic nervous system – the rest, soothe, digest and calm system – is often the first step in improving memory, decision making and prioritising.

Organisations can become more sustainable employers and empower their employees to take care of their mental health. Quest for Life can partner with and support your organisation to work towards these outcomes.
