How does mental health and wellbeing impact Queensland business? 
 Business Chamber Queensland, in partnership with the Queensland Mental Health Commission would like to invite you to join a discussion on mental health and wellbeing and the impact on business.

Many Queensland businesses have faced challenges over the past three years brought about by the pandemic, worker and supply shortages, as well as natural disasters.
But there are many opportunities ahead for businesses to capitalise on too.

Mental health and wellbeing have a ripple effect that impacts not only you, but also your staff, stakeholders, and the local community.

That’s why being mentally, as well as operationally, ready to manage the ups and downs of running a business is so important.

Our expert guest speakers from Beyond Blue, Everymind and Business Wellness Coach will take you through the importance of mental health and wellbeing and provide you with a range of information and resources to support you and a thriving business.

Growing up in northern NSW and attending senior boarding school in Toowoomba, Heidi has a connection with communities either side of the border.
