Prolonged stress can lead to impaired decision-making processes. Exhaustion and worry can lead to isolation and even challenge the best relationships with staff, colleagues, family and friends, impacting on employees, suppliers and customers. All of this can affect the ability to run a business at its most profitable level.
Stress is present at every layer of business but being the boss or in management can impact significantly on mental health. The combination of long hours, unpredictable cash flow, industry challenges, changes in laws and regulatory bodies, responsibility for employees and trying to maintain a life outside the business can leave people feeling mentally exhausted, stressed, anxious or depressed.
Employees who struggle to manage stress may find it challenging to remain focused or may be at an increased risk of developing other mental health challenges.
Effective strategies and techniques can provide solutions to reduce and manage stress at all levels, making a difference to productivity and profit and creating a more cohesive and functional workforce at all levels.

Mental Health First Aid Training creates an opportunity to build better relationships at work and improve business productivity. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) teaches participants how to assist people who are developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional help is received, or the crisis resolves.
Have you ever struggled with what to say or how to support someone suffering from a mental health issue? By understanding the impact of mental health issues, managers and employees can learn to support each other in appropriate ways. Mental Health First Aid awareness builds an environment conducive to recovery. Knowledge of mental health issues reduces and eliminates stigma in our communities and creates an environment of inclusion, supporting all employees.
In a world where almost everything is now on demand, you'd think our lives would be easier, fuller, more textured. From phone addictions to alcohol consumption, we are bingeing like never before!
Binge Living is infiltrating our lives leaving us feeling overwhelmed with choice and access, yet under resourced to enjoy it, creating anxiety and distress. Binge Living is defined as long periods at work followed by short amounts of time off that consist of poor decision making, over consumption of alcohol, actions and reactions, and huge amounts of food and regret. But it is more than that, it is over doing things that do no fulfil us, and then a vast feeling of emptiness, frustration, and the cycle continues. This impacts on our mental health, productivity and longevity of life.
Managing Binge Living is not as difficult as it may first appear. Catalysts for change may be closer than you realise, providing alternatives to bring back a quality in life and a sense of control and power over choices.
