One in five Australian employees report that they have taken time off work due to feeling mentally unwell in the past 12 months. Untreated mental health conditions have a significant impact on many organisations and reportedly cost Australian workplaces approximately $10.9 billion per year.

Employee stress is a growing concern for organisations today and COPE Centre offers a comprehensive work stress treatment program to help employees deal effectively with stress in the workplace.
