What in the workplace affects Mental Health?

Mental illness is more prevalent than many people realise. Around 45% of Australians aged between 16 and 85 will experience a mental illness at some point in their life, while one in five Australian adults will experience a mental illness in any given year.

It is often presumed that a worker’s mental illness develops outside of the workplace. However, an ‘unhealthy’ work environment or a workplace incident can cause considerable stress and exacerbate, or contribute to, the development of mental illness.

Below are the highest factors contributing to poor mental health in the workplace:

  • work pressure
  • work-related harassment and/or bullying
  • exposure to workplace or occupational violence
  • other mental stress
  • exposure to a traumatic event
  • vehicle accident
  • being assaulted
  • sexual/racial harassment

Checking in on a colleague or employee’s mental health is going to make them feel supported and cared for whilst also looking after the business as well. Approximately 25% of workers take time off every year for stress-related reasons.

It is clear that the cost of ignoring the problem is far greater than the cost of developing and implementing strategies to create a safe and healthy workplace.

Recognising and promoting mental health is an essential part of creating a safe and healthy workplace. Importantly, managers and workers both have roles to play in building a safe work environment, one that will not create or exacerbate mental health problems and where workers with mental illness are properly supported.
