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 provides practical guidance to assist in identifying, prioritising and implementing actions that you can undertake in your workplace.

Better mental health at work – why it matters?

Healthy workplaces promote mental health and wellbeing. They are positive and productive and get the best out of everyone in the workplace. Businesses that care about good mental health and wellbeing attract and keep top talent because they’re great places to work. The facts are clear – as well as benefiting employees, a mentally healthy workplace is also better for your bottom line.

Pippa Rose, Workplace Implementation Manager for beyondblue, discusses the importance of mentally healthy workplaces, the business case for taking action and examples of free resources available through the Heads Up website.

Every workplace is unique, so your approach needs to be tailored to fit your workplace.

Rachel Komen, Workplace Project Manager for beyondblue, outlines the steps involved in developing a workplace mental health strategy, including the critical success factors that will assist in developing a successful strategy, and discuss how the Heads Up website can help.
