According to Mental Health Australia, burnout rates among health practitioners continued to rise with rates climbing from 80% to 84% from 2020 – 2022.
Further research has uncovered high rates of stress leading to anxiety and depression among what is typically characterised as a ‘highly resilient’ workforce.
It is critical that health practitioners are supported in managing their wellbeing, self-care, and mental health. And by actively doing so, health practitioners will ensure a more efficient and effective work environment that not only contributes to a healthier work-life balance, but also allows them to sustainably support their clients.
