When we help

Whether it’s a bereavement or a separation, a family crisis or a bushfire, an unexpected event can derail someone’s life overnight.

Without the right support, these challenges can easily threaten a person’s mental health and wellbeing. But a workplace can provide valuable help by offering the right resources at this time of need.

Transitioning Well’s Specialised Support Program (SSP) offers an innovative type of Employee Assistance Program (EAP) tailored to the needs of small and medium (SME) business. 

The service can help individuals with a range of issues and deliver proactive solutions to help their health and wellbeing.

As well as supporting team members (and their families), owners and leaders can also get confidential 1:1 assistance to support their mental health and wellbeing and that of their business. 

The service is available between the hours of 8am-6pm (AEST), Monday to Friday excluding public holidays. 

No retainers required—just a small set-up investment and an ongoing fee for service approach to support you and your team when it's needed the most.

Career Transition Series

Many of us will experience career transitions in our lifetime - whether it is having a baby or a career change, managing a personal crisis, or retiring from the workforce altogether. As an employer or manager, it can be hard to know how best to support someone during these times of career transition.

The Career Transition Series provides workplaces with research-led and practical approaches. It shares the stories of organisations supporting their people through eight key transitions, highlights what has worked and relays lessons for others. Crises and career shocks in one of the eight transitions highlighted. 

Career shocks and unanticipated events, such as the death of a loved one, divorce or separation, working or personal crises, or natural disasters can cause significant distress. They cannot be prepared for and, even when known, the effects are often unanticipated. As with all transitions, ensuring person-centred care and tailored support during this time is critical. 

Developed in partnership with National Mental Health Commission, the series was produced through the National Workplace Initiative after research and consultation highlighted the need for guidance on supporting career transitions.
