Mental Health Issues in the Workplace 2019 - 29 August 2019 (On Demand)


Supporting staff with mental illness to improve wellbeing

Most New Zealanders will have some mental health issues in their lifetime.

If left undiagnosed or untreated, mental health issues can significantly impact on a person’s ability to do their job. The World Health Organisation has listed depression as the leading cause of productivity loss worldwide.

In addition to performance and productivity issues, we will consider an employer’s legal compliance. Find out how to avoid discrimination, support staff, and comply with health and safety law. Discover how to discuss mental health issues with staff.

Our webinar will provide an effective overview of mental health issues, with a focus on anxiety and depression. We will consider case studies to show you how to deal with real issues.

This webinar is presented by behavioural expert Michael Hempseed of Employee Solution Service, in conjunction with employment lawyer Julia Shallcrass of KiwiBoss Limited.
