Associate Professor of mental health, Kristy Sanderson, is concerned with what employers can do to offer more mentally healthy workplaces, and what employees can do to become more resilient to job stress.

Paving the way to optimal mental health & productive workplaces

The barriers between our work and home lives are becoming more blurred. Improvements in technology have seen work become more portable, the expectation to do more with less is commonplace, and it's making us stressed. Today, 15% of depression is caused by the workplace. The good news is there is a lot we can do about it.

Associate Professor of mental health, Kristy Sanderson, is concerned with what employers can do to offer more mentally healthy workplaces, and what employees can do to become more resilient to job stress.

'One of the most important things is recovery time, which can include short-term breaks from work. But currently, there are barriers to asking for this. There is a stigma around asking for time off for mental health,' said Associate Professor Sanderson.

'Some forms of mental illness, like depression and anxiety, are very common health problems, and some can be prevented. There is a clear benefit to employers in facilitating mentally healthy workplaces.'

'The loss of productivity caused by psychological stress is expensive and it goes beyond the individual. It affects the whole team, particularly if the individual is in a management position.'

'Alternatively, people who are happy are more productive, innovative and creative. These things are essential for knowledge economy jobs.'

According to Associate Professor Sanderson, there is a lot that employers can do to facilitate a team with optimum mental health.

'It requires a whole of organisation approach. Employers need to be open to discussions about how people are feeling and be flexible in the type of supports they offer. For some this could be recovery time, for others it could be temporary changes to the way they work.'

'Colleagues need to be aware of the symptoms of psychological stress and know what they can say and do to help someone displaying symptoms. It can be as simple as asking someone how they feel. That simple question can transform a life. Individuals need to recognise the symptoms in themselves and ask for time out.'

'Mental health is a continuum with optimum mental health at one end, and clinical illness at the other. We want to help people move closer towards the positive end.'

Some symptoms include losing the ability to have fun and find pleasure in things you normally enjoy, having your personal and social roles interfered with, depressed mood, disruption in sleep or appetite and thinking slowly.

'Ignoring these symptoms can have serious long-term consequences. Once people have a collection of these symptoms over a period of two weeks or longer, they can be considered to have a clinical illness.'

'When a clinical illness develops, chemical changes occur in the brain, and some people are unable to return to exactly how they were before they became ill.'

Associate Professor Sanderson, with colleagues across the University, has just completed a five-year study of a workplace with 30,000 employees to determine ways to facilitate mentally healthy workplaces.

'We found that an imbalance between the amount of effort an employee put in and the reward they felt they received for that effort was the most significant determinant of psychological stress.'

'By offering a health-promotion program and some flexibility to engage in healthy lifestyle activities like increasing exercise, reducing smoking and so on, employers can reduce that imbalance and help reduce people's stress.'

'The perception that your employer is looking out for you and has your welfare in mind has a really positive impact. And, it is something that every employer can do.'

Associate Professor Sanderson is looking for businesses of all sizes to be involved in ongoing studies promoting mentally healthy workplaces.

Biography

Following psychology training and registration in Sydney Kristy worked for a number of years as a researcher in tertiary mental health settings including a specialist anxiety treatment centre, acute inpatient psychiatry, and community mental health. She concurrently completed a PhD part-time in psychiatric epidemiology at the School of Psychiatry at St. Vincent's Hospital, University of New South Wales.  Following on from her doctoral work she was an invited consultant to the World Health Organisation Burden of Disease and Cost-Effectiveness landmark project where she co-authored a model mental health service for treating depression for countries of varying incomes (low, middle and high). This work spurred her interest in prevention and public health approaches to mental health, with a recurring theme of using workplaces to promote good mental health. She has worked ever since as a research intensive academic holding various research fellowships along the way including a National Health and Medical Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship at the School of Public Health, Queensland University of Technology which she transferred to the Menzies Institute for Medical Research, University of Tasmania. Kristy recently completed an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship and was appointed Principal Research Fellow on promotion to Associate Professor.

Expertise

Kristy's research profile is in the epidemiology and economic burden of mental disorders and related chronic diseases. As a psychiatric epidemiologist her research focuses on furthering our understanding of how mental health conditions impact on people's functioning, quality of life, and healthy lifestyle behaviours, with a particular interest in the inter-relationships between work, health, and productivity. She has published two of the most cited papers on depression and presenteeism, and recent and current research includes: a novel modelling study to explore improved management of presenteeism in employees with depression; an evaluation of a workplace health promotion program across a public sector workforce; a randomized controlled feasibility trial of a telephone-delivered psychological intervention for depression post MI, with Kristy leading the work on impact of comorbid depression on employment and quality of life in post-MI populations; a randomised controlled trial of a workplace mental health promotion intervention in small business; and a pilot feasibility RCT of mindfulness in the workplace. Kristy has a strong focus on understanding the types of evidence that will help employers engage with health and mental health interventions. Much of her research is policy-driven by the needs of the partner organisations.

Collaboration

Kristy is the Director of a training centre for the global gold standard instrument for psychiatric diagnosis for research and surveillance, the WHO-CIDI. The Centre provides advice and training across the Asia Pacific region, including most recently with researchers from Japan, Cambodia, Singapore, Philippines, New Zealand and Australia. Kristy co-leads the University of Tasmania Work, Health & Wellbeing Network. This University-wide collaboration brings together researchers from business, medicine, psychology, economics, law, and the social sciences to better understand how experiences of our workplaces and jobs are connected with health and social wellbeing. It is strengthening collaborations with our partners interstate and internationally. Through the ADVENT cohort study she is collaborating with an Australian-US team to better understand how different patterns of psychological symptoms after a heart attack influence outcomes. Her work involves collaboration with private and public sector organisations who are interested in how to better promote health and wellbeing in their staff. Kristy has also been an invited consultant to the World Health Organisation Burden of Disease and Cost-Effectiveness landmark project where she co-authored a model mental health service for treating depression for countries of varying incomes (low, middle and high).

Publications

Kristy is internationally known for her work on depression and presenteeism, having one of the most highly cited articles in the field.  More broadly she has recent publications on inter-relationships between work and health in Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Human Relations,Stress & Health,Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, American Journal of Health Promotion,Quality of Life Research, PLOS ONE, and Journal of Health, Safey and Environment.  Her work is highly amenable to translation due to it often being jointly designed and produced with industry partners. Earlier papers demonstrated the importance of measuring psychiatric disability using tools that were comparable with other areas of medicine and amenable to use in economic evaluation, and a series of papers investigated the 'best buys' for reducing the burden of mental disorders in Australia and globally (British Journal of Psychiatry, Journal of Affective Disorders, Psychological Medicine). Kristy is on the Editorial Board of the American Journal of Health Promotion, and is a recent past Editor ofSocial Psychiatry & Psychiatric Epidemiology.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) WorkSmart program: A novel online program to assist people living with MS in the workforce (2018 - 2020)$300,000
Description
Nearly half ($494M) of the total cost of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) ($1.04 billion a year) in Australia is due to sickness absence and early retirement. A large societal cost saving can be made by assisting people with MS to maintain their employment and reduce difficulties associated with their employment. Further, this will have financial benefits for people with MS, as well as improve their overall quality of life. Despite a clear need, there are currently no self-management interventions specifically for people with MS in the workforce. In this project we propose to complete the development and undertake a feasibility study of the MS WorkSmart Program. MS WorkSmart is an online cognitive behaviour therapy self-management program with telephone support accessible on different devices. MS WorkSmart guides a person with MS through six modules over 13-15 weeks, using quizzes, videos and homework activities to assist the learning of strategies that can be applied to their working and daily lives for optimal MS management. The program is being developed together with people with MS and other stakeholders using focus groups and iterative feedback. It is underpinned by cognitive behavioural theory, is embedded in the literature and specifically designed for people with MS who are in the workforce. People will be assisted with telephone-delivered psychological support.

Cardiometabolic risk trajectories from childhood to midlife: finding pathways to better health (2017 - 2020)$1,531,986
Description
Using data from a large cohort of Australian children followed for over 30 years, this study will investigate how weight status and physical fitness from childhood to adulthood determine early markers of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes (cardiometabolic disease) in midlife. It will provide much needed evidence to address the high prevalence of cardiometabolic disease risk factors in young Australians through better targeted disease prevention and early clinical intervention strategies.

Development of a discussion paper on an Australian Workplace Mental Health Framework (2016)$3,718
Description
To develop a discussion paper to support the development of an Australian Standard or Framework for workplace mental health. The first stage of the project will focus on gathering all the information necessary to build the discussion paper - this will involve literature review and stakeholder consultation. The literature scan will focus on understanding good practice and lessons learned in implementing standards across jurisdictions and will explore workplace mental health activity already being conducted across Australia. Stakeholder consultations will be conducted as both targeted interviews and workplace focus groups. The next stage of the project will involve validation and reporting of the information gathered in the first stage. This will involve analysis of the consultation findings and presentation of a summary document of themes found in the consultations. Validation of findings will occur by distribution of the consultations findings to the working groups and receipt of individual comments feedback via email for discussion at the analysis workshop with Super friend andBeyond blue. It will also involve a half day analysis workshop with Superfriend and beyond blue to review findings from the literature scan and consolations to identify the priority issues and recommendations to be highlighted in the discussion paper. The next stage will involve drafting the discussion paper on the outcomes of the half workshop and wider findings and then finally the finalizing the discussion. Specifically, Kate Memish will contribute to the preparation of a literature review, undertake stakeholder consultation, participate in a workshop to analyse and synthesize results, participate in a workshop with SuperFriend and Beyond Blue to review research results and contribute to the writing of the final report.

The aim of this study is to design an evidence-based approach to developing and implementing clinical guidelines for GPs that incorporate the complexities of managing multimorbidity. The project will do this by using answers from the following research questions: 1) is multimorbidity addressed within major Australian chronic disease guidelines? If so, how?; 2) is multimorbidity addressed specifically in prevention and treatment recommendations for physical activity promotion/exercise prescription?; 3) how do physical activity promotion/exercise prescription recommendations compare across different disease guidelines and what are the identifiable areas of commonality and/or contradiction across guidelines?; 4) how might physical activity promotion/exercise prescription recommendations in different guidelines be integrated in a way which will better support GPs management of multimorbidity? This study will focus on common chronic diseases which account for around 60% of the total chronic problems managed in general practice and which are also commonly seen as co-morbidities, namely: cardiovascular disease and its risk factors (hypertension and lipid abnormalities); musculoskeletal diseases (osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and back pain); diabetes mellitus; asthma and chronic obstructive airways disease; and depression. For research questions 1 to 3, the project will conduct content analysis of Australian evidence-based guidelines for management of chronic disease in primary care. Steps in this will include: 1) a systematic search of both the scientific and grey literature to identify existing Australian guidelines; 2) assessment of guideline quality against the Scottish Intercollegiate Guideline Network (SIGN) methodology; 3) data extraction and content analysis. For research question 4, the data from content analysis will be used to develop potential models of integrating recommendations from multiple guidelines into a form that is readily usable by GPs. The project will explore how to present information on multimorbidity in guidelines for primary care, with reference to physical activity/exercise qualitatively using key stakeholder interviews and focus groups with general practitioners to test alternative methods of presentation of guidelines information on managing physical activity recommendations in the presence of multimorbidity. Feedback will be sought on clinical relevance, usability, applicability to different multimorbidity scenarios, and applicability of existing tools to help practitioners discuss management of multiple diseases with their patients. The project will develop a guideline model for physical activity which as a next step will be ready for formal testing by randomised controlled trial.

A prospective cohort study investigating the relationships between negative emotions, biomarkers and long term functioning in post-MI patients (2014 - 2015)$267,113
Description
Depression and anxiety commonly occur in patients with heart disease, particularly those who have had a heart attack. Together they represent a large burden on the healthcare system as well as individual patients lives. This study will help us to further understand the complex biological and psychological relationships between depression/anxiety and heart disease. It specifically investigates how particular mental health symptoms predict a patients job outcomes and healthcare utilisation.

Guidance of Heart Failure Management Programs by Risk Assessment (2013 - 2018)$1,422,739
Description
The aims of this project are to reduce Heart Failure (HF) admissions and costs in Tasmania by: i) using data linkage to identify locations where community service delivery should be targeted, and to evaluate current performance in HF readmission across the State; ii) developing a risk algorithm for HF readmission, including psychosocial determinants; iii) using i) and ii) devising a novel means of providing a disease management program (DMP), titrated to risk assessment, with physiologic assessment used to guide the management of the highest risk patients; iv) developing a clinical trial to define the merits of this approach; v) evaluating the cost-effectiveness of this intervention; vi) presentation of educational activities with community-based providers. A successful intervention is likely to be sustainable. As HF readmissions in Tasmania cost ~4550 bed days/y, the investment in this grant (~$1/2m/y) could be reproduced by a 50% reduction of readmissions.

Epidemiologic and Economic Approaches to Reduce the Burden of Depression and Related Chronic Disease in the Workforce (2009 - 2013)$534,400
Description
Depressive and anxiety disorders are common and costly. Much of this economic burden occurs at work. Drawing on epidemiological, behavioural, social and economic sciences, this research program will inform a reduction of this burden by: i) providing new national estimates on the prevalence and associated productivity loss of these disorders in the Australian workforce; ii) estimating the contribution of adverse psychosocial work environments to these disorders; iii) quantifying the mental health and productivity improvements from a trial of an innovative intervention in the neglected small business sector; iv) developing and applying new methods for quantifying the economic burden from absenteeism and presenteeism.
