Developing a plan and taking action on workplace mental health

When considering the mental health of your workplace, it is important that an organisation takes an approach that suits its specific needs and priorities.

In developing your plan, evidence shows that taking an integrated approach leads to the greater benefits. In this context, an ‘integrated approach’ is about everyone in the workplace. It focusses on three components:

  • promoting the positives of work and wellbeing
  • protecting the mental health of all staff, and
  • supporting staff with mental health conditions

Linking to the integrated approach, Mark Leopold from the Workplace Engagement team at beyondblue will provide practical guidance to assist in identifying, prioritising and implementing actions that you can undertake in your workplace.


Mark Leopold is Head of Workplace Engagement for beyondblue and promotes the benefits people can gain by working in mentally healthy workplaces. As a member of the beyondblue team he helps to stimulate more conversations within Australian organisations.
