Mark Butler on a proactive approach to mental health and supporting your team

• 44 min

We’re having a conversation about Mental Health. There was once the belief that there is our personal life and our work life and never the two shall meet. What we know is that the line between personal and work is more intertwined than ever before. And as a leader the solution is never to tell people to leave their issues at home or to harden up. But as leaders, it can feel hard to know what to do when people on our team need some extra support. Accredited clinical psychotherapist Mark Butler believes that prevention is better than reaction. Mark has 25 years corporate experience and 15 years’ clinical experience in the field with a focus on workplace burnout, stress, anxiety and related unhealthy coping behaviours. From his work as a Clinical Director, developing programs for the most deeply affected populations, Mark completely understands burnout and executive exhaustion. He sees the need to shift from being the ‘ambulance at the bottom of the cliff’ to being the ‘fence at the top of the cliff’ – working with organisations to be proactive in preventing issues from becoming problems. Mark’s knowledge and experience has underpinned his drive and passion for pursuing effective recovery and resilience programs to get employees back on track and performing at their optimum level. His practice is built around belonging and our primal, human need to feel safe.   Get Help (For your or a friend) Lifeline: Call 13 11 14 to talk with or visit Beyond Blue: Call 1300 22 4636 to talk with or visit   Connect With Mark Get UP YOURS!
