Mental Health and Wellbeing in Australian Small Business

Despite small businesses constituting almost 98% of all businesses in NSW, current workplace mental health programs are not designed for, and do not cater to their needs. The aim of this research is to develop a better understanding of mental health of those in small business, including perceived needs, factors that may make individuals more vulnerable to mental ill-health, and the types of professional support that would be most acceptable and appropriate.
