IN THE COMPANY #7 Nick Avanitis on creating mentally healthy workplaces

It’s easy to get lost in the constant busyness of doing everything in your startup. But as your businesses’ #1 asset, how will you find the balance between work and well-being?

Today we’re in the company of Nick Arvanitis, Head of Workplace Research and Development at Australian mental health organisation beyondblue.org.au. Nick leads projects that support workforces to create and maintain mentally healthy workplaces, including HeadsUp.org.au

“One in five Australians will experience a mental health condition during their lifetime. Over one million Australians live with depression, and over two million have anxiety. As one of the largest employment sectors in Australia, small to medium enterprises (SMEs) are highly likely to face a mental health related issue in their workplace at some point.
(learn.beyondblue-elearning.org.au/business…ce/s2_1a)

• 1 in 5 employees are likely to be experiencing a mental health condition
• Untreated mental health conditions cost Australian employers $10.9 billion EVERY YEAR
• PWC research shows: $2:30 is the average return on investment for every $1 invested in creating a mentally healthy workplace.
