Our vision is for an Australia where all workplaces are mentally healthy.

So why invest in workplace mental health?

For many of us, a significant portion of our waking hours are spent at work. It’s safe to say the workplace can make a huge impact on quality of life which is why investing in workplace mental health is necessary.

It’s good for business.

Mental illness costs Australian employers billions of dollars each year.

Investing in workplace mental health increases productivity, morale, engagement, innovation, team cohesiveness, performance, and business growth.

It’s the law.

Employees have a legal right to a psychologically safe working environment.

While mental health support from employers is critical, it is also vital for them to offer reasonable adjustments that comply with the law if an employee has a mental health condition.

It’s the right thing to do.

Employers and people leaders play a crucial role in protecting the mental health of all employees.

People working at organisations that are mentally healthy are far less likely to experience a mental health condition that they believe is work-related.

That it’s ok to ask for help and the importance of looking out for others.”
