Let’s make mental health your business

The challenges faced by many SMB owners are no doubt being compounded by the current global health crisis. So now, more than ever, it’s important to take proactive steps to manage your mental health. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, they employ nearly half of the Australian workforce, however, 1 in 2 small business owners experience a mental health condition. 72% don’t seek help.  Let’s change that.


At MYOB, our purpose is to make it easier for businesses to start, survive and succeed. We believe this takes a holistic approach. We passionate about the ability of businesses and their owners to succeed, and we see mental wellbeing as a critically important contributor to success.


That’s why we’re on a mission to make mental health everyone’s business.

In partnership with Smiling Mind, the number 1 mindfulness app in Australia,  we’ve fast-tracked the delivery of our Small Business Program – a psychologist designed program to support the mental, emotional and physical wellbeing of small business owners. The program covers topics such as:

  • Mindfulness 101 – laying the foundations of importance of mindfulness
  • Stress Management – self-compassion, sitting with uncertainty, shorter SOS practices
  • Relationships – managing work/life balance, dealing with isolation
  • Resilience – growing inner strength, connections, confidence

Best of all, the program is free to use with the Smiling Mind app.


Mindfulness can help you feel more calm, clear and grounded.  It’s from this place, business owners are able to respond to situations, rather than react to them. With the uncertainty that the current medical crisis is causing, mindfulness is now, perhaps more than ever, a practice we can all adopt to help us navigate these times.


We know that when our minds thrive, we’re in the best place to focus on getting back to business.
