Heads Up on mental health

THIS week Beyond Blue launched its Heads Up website, which is all about creating a mentally healthy workplace.

With 45% of Australians between 16-85 years old experiencing a mental health condition during their life, it’s a big issue.

A supportive workplace benefits everyone, including employers. A report commissioned for Beyond Blue found that public administration workers were least likely to say they worked in a mentally healthy workplace. The research also showed that every dollar businesses invested in mental health they’d receive a return on investment of $2.30.

An interactive guide, the Heads Up website shows how to:

  • Create a positive working environment;
  • Build individual skills and resilience;
  • Support staff with mental health conditions; and
  • Create a mental health plan for a workplace

Take a look at the new Heads Up site here.
