RU OK Day 2022


Today with RU OK Day, it is worth considering that even in the best times, people have traumatic incidents. These incidents can have lasting effects as they go through life's ups and downs. I am sure we all know of someone with a tragic record of suicide, depression or anxiety. Today many people, because of lockdowns, were locked in their homes. Feeling lonely and isolated and are now finding the strain of trying to return to everyday life challenging. Just trying to get to work on time after three years is an effort.

It is not just a personal issue as an employer. You do have a legal duty of care.

If you have any doubts about an employee's mental condition today, ask if they are OK! I know that they will appreciate someone who cares enough to ask. Please be diplomatic. If you want to hang up a poster click here. {link removed]

If you have doubts or are unsure what to do, I suggest you contact your employee group to find out what you can do. Remember this problem, its a potential legal nightmare so find out what you can and cannot do to help. They often have mental health experts to advise you. I had one client who had a possibly violent guy, which brings up another problem he was responsible for making a safe workspace.

We're fortunate to be living in Australia, with access to high-quality mental health care, resources and support services. Much of which is free.

Note: I saw a great film that I enjoyed on mental health and suggest if you are interested in this, The Sunset Limited. If you are interested in this sort of stuff, I think you will enjoy it too with a beautiful story and great actors.
