You may have met Greg at Fruits in Suits in August. Greg hosts this webinar from Heads Up & Beyond Blue providing tips for this interacting with small business owners.

The presenters of this webinar will take you through how to use the Beyond Blue guide titled Supporting small business owners to improve their mental health and wellbeing at work – A guide for work contacts, friends and family. Covering real life scenarios, the presenters offer practical tips to help you make the most of the guide.

This resource is designed for people who have contact with small business owners and are concerned about their mental health and wellbeing.

Perhaps it’s a work contact, family member or friend who doesn’t quite seem themselves and may have shared with you that their business is causing them worry.

If you are finding their behaviour very concerning, there is guidance on page 3 for immediate steps you can help them take.

If you don’t have immediate concerns, but can see some worrying signs, we can step you through how to speak with the person and help them take action to improve their situation.

There is also a section with planning tools for small business owners to prepare a:

  • Personal wellbeing plan
  • Workplace wellbeing plan

These are ideal to help small business owners make plans for the future through enhancing their own mental health and wellbeing and that of their employees, if they have them.

There are various sections in this resource, which you can refer to as much or as little as you like. Just use the navigation bar at the top on each page to dip in and out of the content.
