EML has combined its resources in one easily accessible web location to assist workers, their families and employers with prevention and recovery from work-related mental health injury and issues.
The hub, which has been launched on the first day of Mental Health month, covers a range of topics and issues through videos, articles and guides.
With one in five Australians at work currently experiencing some kind of mental illness it is in the top five of all injuries EML manages, so it is a vital resource for anyone requiring support in mental health issues in the workplace.” EML National Member Benefits Manager Elisa Hitchens said.
“These resources are designed to assist the worker, their family, the community and the employer.
“We are heavily invested in delivering mental health resources that allow maximum knowledge and optimum recovery.”
EML as a mutual reinvests heavily in research and resource development. Since 2012 EML has provided nearly $65m in Member Benefits resourcing, funded 775 work, health and safety programs and delivered more than 100,000 hours of free online courses.
