Associate Prof Samuel Harvey, a psychiatrist with the Black Dog Institute who runs the workplace mental health research program at the school of psychiatry, University of New South Wales, said it was not enough for a workplace to provide a phone number for an employee counselling program.

“Good workplaces now create a suite of interventions, from prevention through to recovery, and they do it because it’s right and because economic analyses show it makes good business sense,” he said.
