Mental health during COVID-19

Resources for Businesses

The impact of COVID-19 on small businesses is devastating and the toll it is taking on people’s mental health is serious.

Small Business Council Victoria have developed a resource for businesses to support their staff and their own wellbeing during this time. For help in planning for business continuity and preparing for recovery, Victorian small business owners can now access a free practical guide to creating a mental health plan.

The guide comes with an easy to use template for small business owners to build their own tailored plan and an example plan to use as a guide point.
