Some of the statistics being released are staggering, for example:

  • Around 20% of adults are affected by some form of mental disorder every year
  • Nearly half of the population will experience a mental disorder at some stage in their lives
  • Mental illness costs Australian businesses $10.9 billion a year due to absence and work incapacity
  • Mental health problems are the third biggest health problem in Australia, after heart disease and cancer
  • 25% of workers take time off each year for stress-related reasons
