Leon Gettler has recently published an article that reports on the impact of mental illness in the workplace and how this results in reduced productivity. Mental illness is something that many Australians suffer from and the fact that many workers spend close to 8-10 hours a day at work means that there is going to be relationship between someone who has suffers from mental illness and their wellbeing and productivity at work.

Many workplaces are very aware of this and will provide access to services where workers suffering from mental illness to seek treatment. Workplaces must also be aware of their company culture and support and educate staff to work towards better work-life balance. This can be supported by offering workers the opportunity to have flexible working hours, creating more dynamic and active workplaces by providing sit-to-stand workstations, relaxing work areas and by also providing wellness programs for all workers.
