Planning and Advisory

Supporting workplaces in identifying and implementing positive change that leads to a mentally healthier work environment.

OzHelp delivers a best practice model informed by the national approach to work related psychological health and safety.​ OzHelp’s systematic approach aims to positively impact the psychological climate in workplaces across four key areas including: Harm prevention, Early Intervention, Supporting Recovery and Health Initiatives.

How it works

Through undertaking an in-depth analysis of your workplace, OzHelp works to understand your goals and objectives and helps identify the next steps for you to achieve them.

The analysis is conducted against OzHelp’s health and wellbeing maturity model which aids in recognising any existing gaps in the current approach to psychological safety, whilst providing recommendations on how to improve them.
