One in five Australian workers is currently experiencing a mental health condition. And the most common conditions affect people during their prime working years.
Mental health at work is on the agenda, but still it’s rare to see leaders bare their soul in the name of overcoming stigma.
But that’s exactly the spirit we need. So in this episode, two CEOs get real about being human and not just high performing machines.
The new model for work and success starts at the top; with DCA’s own Lisa Annese, Peter Diaz of the Workplace Mental Health Institute, and expert advice from Patrice O’Brien of beyondblue.
Researched and hosted by: Andrew Maxwell. Produced and written by: Andrea Maltman Rivera. Executive Produced by: Lisa Annese. Contributions from: Catherine Petterson. Special thanks to Audiocraft.
