Why Invest in Early Intervention Mental Health Strategies
The direct financial cost of mental illness to Australian businesses is approximately $13 billion (KPMG,2018). Millions of Australian workers are becoming mentally unwell in workplaces (Molly, 2019).
Cost effectiveness of community-based crisis intervention efforts can save lives (Comans et al, 2013). Evidence shows that promoting a positive workplace culture can increase an individual’s chances of seeking help and support when it comes to their mental and emotional health. Health programs show a great return on investment. In fact, value in a Federal study shows $5.81 of value for every dollar spent (Federal Government Assessment via Comcare, 2011).

What programs can we offer?
Mind Blank workplace programs provide mental health education and offer prevention and early intervention training that focuses on resilience building to skill up employees in a workplace setting.
Mind Blank will facilitate an online or face-to-face health workshop. Stories of lived experience are shared and professional actors and trained up health care workers will host a resilience-building session using role play techniques to engage the audience to learn new skills.
Program participants will walk away understanding the value of self-care application. They will know how to promote a speak-up culture and will have learnt the important pathways for help-seeking to encourage emotional and mental wellness. Practical application of any of the above skills has the potential to increase an individual’s chance of early intervention to support their health and wellbeing.
We are not a crisis support service. We are not going to give you another speaker to share a personal story, and we do not offer mental health first aid. What we can offer is educations programs that build skills. We guarantee high participant engagement in a fun and non-threatening environment.
