Mental Health Community Support Fund 

MENTAL HEALTH FUNDING AVAILABLE FOR AUSTRALIAN SMEs

We are funding Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) through the ShareTree Community Support Fund to establish effective and sustainable mental health practices. As 43% – 64% of SMEs typically experience a mental health strain, the current usage of Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) stands at a mere 6% and some SMEs can’t afford EAP services. To address this gap in support, ShareTree have developed a Mental Health & Wellbeing Program designed to empower SMEs to improve upon skills, optimise culture and process. This will be achieved through a group learning community that supports, shares and learns from each other, coupled with mental health knowledge, resources and technology solutions to create a significant shift in the following areas:
