“If you’re feeling unsettled, anxious or stressed, we all are. That’s absolutely normal in circumstances we find ourselves in,” Beyond Blue chief executive Georgie Harman said.

Late last month, MyBusiness hosted a special, three-day, virtual event to help small-business owners wade through the rough COVID-19 seas.

Editor Maja Garaca Djurdjevic chatted with Georgie Harman about the importance of mental health in the workplace and why it’s everyone’s business.

Ms Harman shared some key tips to help employers recognise when their employees may be mentally struggling through the coronavirus crisis and steps to take to help them navigate through the tough environment.

Ms Harman also provided some key tips that small-business owners can use to check in with themselves.
