Key Steps for a Mentally Healthy Workplace
Achieving a mentally healthy workplace is increasingly a goal for organisations, however the challenge is to move from awareness-raising or ad hoc programs through to an integrated approach to sustaining positive mental health.
Research has shown that in NSW less than 10% of workplaces have an integrated and sustained approach to mental health and wellbeing, with close to one-in-five businesses only having a basic awareness of workplace mental health. Sometimes it takes a crisis to bring mental health to the forefront of thinking for an organisation, at other times it can be driven by leaders that aim to create a work environment of respect and inclusivity.
This session will explore the drivers for change and importantly the key capabilities to build and sustain mental health as an integral part of culture through the use of case studies and research. Coinciding with Mental Health Month this is a great opportunity to engage in dialogue and share ideas.
