For service providers working with small business owners, there are times when we need to be conscious of the client we work with, their mindset and the pressures they face in both their businesses and their day to day lives. For small business owners, work and life are often intertwined.

COVID-19 has created great uncertainty for all, but none more so than the Small Business Community. When small business owners are struggling, they often turn to consultants, who are well positioned to recognise the stressors that can impact negatively on mental health and wellbeing. It can be hard to know how to help small business clients with their mental health and wellbeing, while also looking after your own.

That’s why Beyond Blue has launched ‘Mental wellbeing: support yourself and small businesses‘, a free online training course to give business consultants the confidence and tools to support the mental health of small business owners.

Join Realise Business CEO, Jacqui Attard, as she speaks with Linda and Tim who are part of the team behind this incredible resource developed by Beyond Blue.

The session will consist of an overview of the course and why it’s of such great need and value, followed by an open panel discussion between our 3 expert speakers on all things small business and mental health.

This webinar is best suited to businesses advising small businesses such as bookkeepers, accountants, lawyers, digital agencies, business coaches.
