One in two Australians will at some point in their life experience mental health issues. Employers are increasingly seeing more and more work claims relating to their staffs' mental health and it's costing Australian businesses a staggering $10 billion per year.

There is a big price tag to pay when employers ignore and fail to manage mental health conditions in the workplace. Not only will employers experience high cost because of work claims, they stand to lose billions more from the loss of productivity and absenteeism.Read more

The 4 Corners expose of Don Dale and the death in custody of Ms Dhu have rocked us – but as we all know, the issues go far beyond these two examples. The broader story of Aboriginal incarceration across the nation is largely known. Indigenous Australians make up 27% of the national prison population – a statistic that has almost doubled from 14% at the time of the 1991 Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody. Almost 79% of Indigenous Australians in custody have been in prison before.Read more
