MASSAGING STAFF IN MENTAL HEALTH FACILITIESNATIONWIDE; RELIGIOUS AND SECULAR; NURSES TO ADMIN/HR/FIN/EXEC
Staff in mental health units, institutions and facilities have one of the highest turnovers of staff, as well as one of the greatest levels of stress, anxiety and depression within healthcare. The exposure to aggression, bullying levels and violence is very high. Out of all the staff within healthcare, mental health professionals would be the ones needing massage the most. However, we are the first massage organisation to offer this.
WHY INVEST IN MASSAGE?
Reduce turnover and attract staff.
Massage used as a regular benefit to attract staff, particularily in regional areas, is a key in retaining and attracting quality staff to regional areas and into mental health.
Decrease bullying and powerlessness in the face of aggression.
How do some nurses, doctors and other staff take out their frustrations? On other staff! Massage decreases the need for bullying to be an outlet for frustration.
Lower stress-based workers comp rates.
11% of all WorkCover cases stem from stress overload. Mental health has a significant portion of those cases. Massage used as an intervention aims to lower that number, as well as improve and maintain your staff’s mental and physical health
