Heads Up Beyond Blue - Mental Health Guide for Small Business Advisors

Bookkeepers are often inadvertent counsellors for their clients, but we are not necessarily trained in how to support people who are under extreme stress such as many business owners are. 

We do not need to add to our own stress by trying to help our clients in realms we are not qualified for – but you can offer resources and links to assist. 

Heads Up (the arm of Beyond Blue for supporting mental health in small business and the workplace) has a great document that may be an easy solution to offering help to your clients in distress without getting too close.
