WorkCover WA is promoting beyondblue and the Heads Up initiative to raise awareness about the importance of mentally healthy workplaces.
The Heads Up website provides individuals with information on how to take care of their own mental health and provides tips on how to have a conversation with someone you’re concerned about.
The website also has free tools to help employers develop a Mental Health Action Plan for their business. WorkCover WA encourages employers to create a Mental Health Action Plan that will help:
- increase awareness and reduce stigma relating to mental health conditions;
- support individuals with mental health conditions; and
- reduce risks to mental health in the workplace.
