Creating a mentally healthy workplace

Almost half of all Australians will be affected by a mental health disorder at some stage in their lifetime (ABS - Report 4326.0). Despite this the stigma surrounding mental health disorders, particularly anxiety and depression, remains. It is only through increasing awareness about the prevalence of mental health issues that this stigma can be reduced. The Heads Up Program developed by Beyond Blue is aimed at doing just this. By increasing awareness of mental health issues at the workplace it is hoped that people will begin to feel comfortable in talking about their illness and taking the steps required to get help. Employers and employees can find more information as well as links to some useful tools, information and resources at www.indst.headsup.org.au.
