We are delighted to invite you to the 2018 Women in Super National Road Show and are excited to announce that our keynote speaker this year will be Lucy Brogden. Lucy is the Chair and Commissioner of the National Mental Health Commission and interim Chair of the Mentally Healthy Workplace Alliance.
One in two Australians is now experiencing mental ill-health, and work-related mental health disorders are a major concern in Australian workplaces. Compensation claims are costing $480 million a year and the health consequences and stress endured by affected employees and their families can be severe.
What can we do to create a positive culture in our organisation to prevent these issues? How can we provide, or improve already existing, programs in our workplace to enable us and our colleagues to perform without compromising our health?
Join us to hear Lucy answer these questions and more, and take a step towards improving the mental health of your organisation.
