Learning how to support you – new research underway!

Mental health is a growing concern for small businesses. Many small business owners and employees work under constant pressure, facing daily challenges that can have a significant impact on their heath and wellbeing. The Council of Small Business Australia recognises this impact, and are working closely with the Hunter Institute of Mental Health to research the wellbeing challenges that might occur within small businesses.

The aim of the research is to gather information from people in Australia who currently work, or have worked in small business, to gain a greater perspective and understanding of the challenges faced in small business - how we deal with them, who we talk to for support and what resources or health programs we think would be of value in the future. The research results will be used to guide the development of new programs to better enhance mental health and wellbeing in the small business industry.

The Hunter Institute of Mental Health are asking for your help to complete a confidential survey that will guide their research. This survey is available to everyone in small business, not just for those that have experienced mental health concerns, and will help lead the way to health and wellbeing programs designed to support the unique needs of small business.
