Mental Health in the Workplace

1 comment


According to a recent WHO report, stress & anxiety affects the global economy by way of a $1 trillion loss in productivity. In Australia, mental health results in a $10.9 billion loss in absenteeism & compensation claims each year.


There are many proactive actions that workplaces can implement to promote mental health in the workplace; resulting in a benefit to productivity, individual well-being & general organisational culture. 


One such action recommended in this report is to have a program or training in place for staff that promotes awareness & well-being. Does your workplace currently have anything like this in place?


The Open Mind Institute has developed & been delivering its Mind Fitness Program (MFP) to progressive firms and organisations across Brisbane. It consists of 10 one hour workshops covering crucial mental enhancement topics and is outcome based (meaning that if there isn't measurable positive results to staff, then your organisation doesn't pay).


To book the MFP for 2018, or if you want to know more, please message me or send and email to and lets get your workplace mentally fit for 2018!

  • Thank you to everyone who attended this mornings 'Mindfit Founders' breakfast event at the Capital! It was a privilege to sit on the panel alongside organisational psychologist Jordan Reutas, 3AM CEO Peta Ellis & Co-founders of TradeMutt Edward Ross & Daniel Allen. The key take-away message was that we need to have consistent 'courageous conversations' around mental wellbeing within our networks & support groups and from an individual perspective, ensure that our 'daily-grind' is being balanced with 5 key areas:- 1. Exercise (where possible coupled with nature) 2. Nutrition 3. Getting enough sleep 4. Debriefing with support network/ loved ones 5. Exercise for the mind (mindfulness & meditation). By doing so, you enhance your productivity, relationships & mental wellbeing! Paul Pitsaras.
