Workplace wellbeing partnerships that work
There is a natural synergy between wellbeing, and workplace productivity, safety and culture. For employees in challenging and hazardous industries, or working in regional, rural and remote communities, access to mental health support is as important as primary health and safety initiatives.
In a society in which the annual prevalence of mental illness is greater than 1 in 5, and suicide is a leading cause of death (ABS, 2018), there is a critical need for collaborative preventative and interventional action. This is the intersection where workplaces and OzHelp can come together, to provide practical support.
