DEAR ALAN, THERE IS A TAX-DEDUCTIBLE, MENTAL HEALTH UPSIDE TO COVID 19.

Here’s a thought on how you can keep all your staff productive during QANTAS’ downturn while doing Australia a great service.

Take the 2,000 QANTAS people who are likely to become temporarily surplus to the airline’s needs and train them as Mental Health First Aid facilitators. I’m sure Mental Health First Aid Australia would cut you a great deal – as no doubt, would the Australian Taxation Department.

And while that would be great for QANTAS, it would be even better for Australia.

Why?

Because having trained them, you then send these wonderful people to wherever you can in rural Australia to talk mental health. Imagine the good that would do for both Australia’s and QANTAS’ wellbeing.

I’m available for a coffee anytime you want.
