The stress of running a business can lead to feelings of isolation, which can affect your business and personal relationships. Family and friends can provide support, and maintaining these relationships is important to you, your business and your personal relationships.
It can also be a challenging time if you are supporting a business owner through a difficult time. There are resources available to give you advice about how you can provide support, and how you can look after yourself as well.
Beyond Blue and HeadsUp have developed a guide for people who have contact with small business owners and are concerned about their wellbeing.
Beyond Blue has been working with intermediary organisations to develop resources for small business advisors to help them support their clients and customers with mental health and wellbeing.
