Mental Health Week 6-14 October 2018
Mental Health Week (6-14 October 2018) promotes the importance of mental health and wellbeing, helping to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness. Get involved and learn more about what your workplace can, and should, be doing to manage psychological
illness and injury risks.
- 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.
- Learn about the early warning signs that indicate a worker may need support. If you notice any changes in behaviour, engage in meaningful conversations with those who may be under stress.
- Download our Mentally healthy workplaces toolkit and other information and resources to help you take positive steps towards a mentally healthy workplace.
- Conduct a psychosocial risk assessment (or review your existing assessment) by talking to workers at team meetings, workplace walk throughs and during individual conversations.
- 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.
- Find out more about what others are doing at on the Mental Health Week website.
