Show close time for other time zones
In the context of the workforce, poor mental health is a contributing factor to the high rate of unscheduled absence. Comcare psychological claims cost approximately twice as much as other claim types due to longer than average time off work.
Employers have a key role to play in providing mentally healthy workplaces for all employees. Furthermore, employers have a significant opportunity to drive prevention activities and support the wellbeing, mental health, recovery and return to work of employees.
NewAccess is an innovative preventative and early intervention service utilising Low-intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (LiCBT) for adults with mild to moderate anxiety and/or depression.
The NewAccess service, developed by Beyond Blue Limited (Beyond Blue), represents an innovative model of care that focuses on prevention and early identification of mild to moderate anxiety and depression. NewAccess is based on the United Kingdom (UK) Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) program and has proven its effectiveness and success in reducing levels of anxiety and depression, as seen through clinical recovery rates.
Comcare will be conducting an industry briefing concerning the RFT. The industry briefing will be conducted via telephone or videoconferencing. Details of the industry briefing will be notified to Tenderers via an addendum to the RFT.
Attendance at the industry briefing is optional, however Tenderers are encouraged to attend.
Tenderers must hold a current licence deed or demonstrate an ability to readily obtain a current licence deed with Beyond Blue Limited for the delivery of the NewAccess program.
