A construction worker is 6 times more likely to die by suicide than a workplace accident.
Mental illness is the leading cause of absenteeism in the Australian workforce costing the Australian economy approximately $11 billion per year in lost productivity. The statistics say that for every $1 invested in initiatives that foster better mental health in the workplace, productivity increases by up to $5. If your business or organisation is looking for a mental health education initiative to create a better workplace culture, increase productivity and better manage the mental health of your workers, the Mental Health Movement will meet your needs.
Injury Prevention & Wellbeing Advisor NSW, SHEQ - Veolia Waste Management
We really enjoyed working with Dan and Mental Health Movement over the five presentations he did at Veolia NSW. His story is very powerful. We would thoroughly recommend Dan and Mental Health Movement to any organisation to positively influence their workforce. We hope to work with Dan again in the future
Safety & Training Superintendent - Whitehaven Coal
Dan’s flexibility allowed us to work with the crews start times to deliver his presentation to the 450 people we have here on site. The presentations were well received by all crews and his knowledge and passion kept the audience’s attention for the hour the presentation went for. The crews and staff spoke about the presentation for weeks afterwards which will see us look at using Dan’s services again in the future.
