Lifeline Adelaide has a long history of providing suicide prevention training to businesses and individuals in the South Australian community.
Why train your workforce?
Training your workforce to understand and assist people at risk of suicide is vital to maintaining workplace health and safety. Business leaders have duties under work health and safety laws to do whatever is reasonably practicable to eliminate or minimise risks to workers’ mental and physical health. Lifeline’s training is an effective way to implement suicide prevention and enhance mental health support services within your business.
Taking a proactive approach to mental health serves to build an organisation’s reputation as an employer of choice, helping them to recruit the best and brightest people.
Invest in your staff and customers by providing Workplace Suicide First Aid training delivered by experts from Lifeline Adelaide.
The cost of mental health problems at work
The cost of untreated mental health conditions is incredibly high – $11 billion every year – and is even greater when additional impacts such as staff turnover, incident claims, insurance payments and the impacts upon other employees are considered.
Return on investment for expenditure improving employee wellbeing and mental health is $2.30 for every $1 invested. This is a big bottom-line impact. The potential for additional intangible benefits such as increased engagement and retention of staff reinforces the business case to invest in mental health.
We know that a partnership with Lifeline Adelaide will positively impact and improve the quality of life of your workforce, their families and your stakeholders, which in turn increases your workplace morale and employee productivity.
