Mental health support for business owners

COVID-19 is causing disruptions to businesses across Victoria, increasing stress and impacting the mental health of business owners. It is important to know how to look after your own mental health, as well as that of your employees.

The ASBFEO website is a good place to start if you’re feeling overwhelmed – their My Business Health website will give you some of the tools to get your business and your health back on track.

Beyond Blue and Heads Up are also good resources for information and support and Business Victoria has information and links to other services.

The Victorian Small Business Commission has published this Small business owners’ guide to creating a mental health plan drawing on insights shared by Victorian small business owners with lived experience of overcoming mental health challenges.
