"If someone doesn’t feel comfortable talking about a mental health issue with colleagues, there is a lot of help outside the workplace. They can see a GP for a referral to the Medicare scheme to see a psychologist or psychiatrist; there are helplines; and there are also friends and family." - Rachel Clements, Psychologist

Remind colleagues there are lots of places to turn to for support, starting here.

Anne-marie Allgrove's story (video) 

"It's actually a role of ours - as leaders - to make time for people and make sure they feel like they can come and speak to us."

 Conversation tip

If someone admits they’re struggling, help them think about one or two things that they can do to better manage the situation. Questions like "What do you think might help you?" or "What needs to be done differently to manage the load?" are a great place to start.
