Mental Health Week 8 - 14 October
Mental Health Week aims to promote the importance of mental health and wellbeing and reduce the stigma associated with mental illness. Get involved and learn more about what your workplace can, and should, be doing to reduce the risks of psychological illness or injury.
Mental Health Week in your workplace
There are plenty of ways you can promote the importance of positive mental health at work during the week:
- Organise a mental health awareness session to reduce stigma and promote help seeking behaviours. You can show and discuss Libby Trickett's film about her personal experience with mental health issues or check out Heads up toolbox talks on how to get a mental health conversation started in your workplace.
- Remind staff about how to access information on local mental health services or your employee assistance provider.
- Arrange a morning tea for staff to help them connect and take a break. Consider fundraising for a mental health organisation doing great work in your community.
- View our mentally healthy workplaces toolkit and other information and resources to help you take positive steps towards a mentally healthy workplace.
- Find out more about what others are doing at on the Mental Health Week website
- View presentations from the Mentally Healthy Workplaces Forum, held in Brisbane on 10 October 2017.
