Here you’ll find guidance on looking after your own mental health with interactive resources such as a pros and cons tool to help you weigh up whether it’s right for you to tell your workplace about your mental health condition, a conversation planner to assist you if you are planning to disclose, and tips for managing stress at work.
If you’re concerned about a colleague or direct report, this section has practical tips to help you have a conversation about mental health, resources for managers such as return to work plan templates, and information about supporting a colleague affected by suicide.
Learn more about your rights and responsibilities as an employer or employee, including issues such as discrimination, privacy, and work health and safety legislation.
