Resilience in the workplace stems from establishing a satisfying work/life balance combined with an ability to respond skilfully in the face of challenge and stress.

Organisations can become more sustainable employers and empower their employees to take care of their mental health. Quest for Life can partner with and support your organisation to work towards these outcomes.

Quest for Life’s workplace workshops focus on research-based holistic health and wellbeing approaches that equip staff and managers with tools required to operate in fast-paced, stressful, complex and potentially distressing and/or traumatic environments.

About workplace mental health 

Recent studies by Accenture Research show that:

  • A high proportion of employees struggle with mental health, and they are not receiving enough support from their organisation.
  • About 45% of employees say anxiety or depression is hurting their productivity in the office—at least on occasion—while nearly 1 in 5 employees (18%) say that anxiety or depression interferes with their work all of the time or often.
A workplace program for your team to learn tools and ways to look after their mental health.

What attendees have said…

Here at DCA, we like to invest in our staff’s mental health. We researched a few resources and decided to use Quest for Life. We had 1 day mental health training day and it was absolutely fantastic. We highly recommend. The day was fun and collaborative. The facilitators were lovely and knowledgeable and the day was very informative – we learnt about tools and ways to look after our mental health. We will use Quest again for mental health training to invest in the health of our staff – 11/10 stars!!!! We’ve had staff utilise methods since this day and it really brought our team together. We are all so very thankful and will be in touch for further mental health training days.
