Event description

Description

One in five Australians have taken time off work in the past 12 months because they felt stressed, anxious, depressed or mentally unhealthy, and this statistic is doubled amongst those who consider their workplace mentally unhealthy. (State of Workplace Mental Health in Australia).


The #LeadingLadies series initially launched as a passion project of Agency Iceberg Founder's Anna O’Dea, spurred when the high visibility she had when placing talent into positions showed that issues like burnout, stress, racism, homophobia, sexism and bullying are still incredibly prevalent in the modern workplace.


#LeadingLadies has now become a global community with over 60,000 readers that empowers both men and women in the workplace to discuss taboo topics and make for positive change.


‘Stress and Depression in the Workplace: Let’s Talk About It’ will be a night where speakers Angie Greene (Stand Up Events), Melissa Griffiths (Transgender Equality and Inclusion Advocate), Suzanne Tonks (Oliver & York), James Ferne (Men’s Collective) as well as Julia Birks and Dave Calleja (Isobar) will share their stories and experiences with dealing with themselves, and helping others manage stress and depression in the workplace.


We'll be discussing:

- How to change attitudes towards stress and depression in the workplace

- Breaking the stigma of men talking about their feelings

- Influencing work policy in order to reduce stress and depression in the workplace

- Finding support on how to manage mental health in the workplace

- What are the barriers in bringing up personal issues at work

- Finding the right space to speak about your issues

- Warning signs that people are displaying mental health issues and how to manage employees who are stressed/burnt out and/or depressed


This #LeadingLadies event is to share experiences and advice on how to better manage stress and depression in the workplace, we are not here to fix you but to facilitate a discussion on how to better support each other in the modern workplace and empower each other to bring the best version of themselves each and every day.

Hosted at OneRoof Melbourne, this will be a non judgemental space welcome to all, with a Q+A at the end of the session.
