One in five working Australians experience a mental illness within a 12-month period
and 45% will experience mental illness in their lifetime.
51% of people report having left at least one job because it was a poor
environment for mental health and well-being.
Join us for our next Musings with Allygroup seminar with guest speaker Marian Moss who will discuss Managing Mental Health for High Performance.
In any year, one in five working Australians will experience a diagnosable mental illness, and many more will suffer significant symptoms that affect health and productivity. However, with the right approaches, people experiencing mental illness can still flourish. Marian will talk about her experiences in both public and private sectors, what helped or hindered her career and health pathways, and what we can do to better manage our own and other people’s mental health and mental illness in the workplace.
Marian has had a highly successful career in private sector legal practice and as a senior executive and general counsel in the APS, and was named Government Lawyer of the Year in 2015. Marian managed a mental health disability throughout her career. Since leaving the APS early this year she has worked as a mentor and educator in the areas of mental health and disability.
Marian’s passion about reducing the ‘mystique’ and stigma surrounding mental illness makes this a special opportunity to have a very frank and open conversation about how to manage mental health in the workplace.
