Mental Health claims and Work Cover and ICWA
We understand that Psychological injury remains a major source of lost time and compensation cost in the Comcare/Work Cover scheme. If someone is off work due to mental ill health, what might begin as a temporary incapacity for work can drift into longer-term disability, disadvantage and unemployment.
Our work with you help you to not only recover from the psychological pain that you are experiencing but to help you rebuild a sense of purpose, productivity and meaning which is essential for holistic recovery.
Work loss due to mental ill health has costs for the individual, their families and communities. In addition, the cost to government and business are cumulative and include absenteeism, reduced productivity and higher workers’ compensation premiums.
We can work with GP’s to help assess worker’s capacity, coordinate return to work, empower people and overcome barriers and risks to return to work.
