Helping Western Australians Thrive at Work

Published on 22 Sep 2017

The Mental Health Commission has partnered with The University of Western Australia’s Centre for Transformative Work Design to support the development of a comprehensive set of mental health support resources for WA workplaces.

The assessment tools, training modules, educational materials and other resources to be developed will assist workplaces to promote positive mental health and wellbeing, and support employee mental health.

Minister for Mental Health Roger Cook said workplaces have the potential to impact on people's mental health both positively and negatively.

"This funding will assist the Centre to better support organisations throughout WA address the health and wellbeing of their employees and create thriving workplaces,” he said.

"With one in five of us experiencing mental health issues in any given year and the many hours we spend at work, it is critical that workplaces know how to create environments that help their employees thrive.”
