Mental Health and Wellbeing

AddthisShare this page

One in 5 Australians will be affected by a mental health disorder each year.

Staying mentally healthy in the workplace means putting coping strategies in place and making sure that our lifestyle supports good mental health.

Creating a mentally healthy workplace is just as important as maintaining a physically healthy one. The good news is, many of the strategies used to create a mentally healthy workplace will result in improvements to the physical health of staff as well.

Through building a mentally healthy workplace, with robust policies and procedures, employers will not only support workers who are vulnerable to mental health issues, they will also attract and retain good staff as a result of their positive workplace culture.

There are some excellent resources available to create a workplace environment that supports good mental health, like these from the WA Association for Mental Health, Act Belong CommitBeyondBlue and Mental Health First Aid Australia.
