Whilst we still have a long way to go, people are becoming more open about discussing mental health issues. PTSD, depression and anxiety are no longer as taboo as before and a more mature conversation is developing. In fact, each year approximately one in every four Australians will experience a mental illness. That makes mental illnesses the third leading cause of disability in Australia.
Insurers have become wary of mental health disability claims and it can be difficult to get cover for such claims. What many people don’t know is that the automatic TPD insurance provided through your superannuation fund will often pay out much needed funds if you cease work due to a mental health condition.
