Workplace Wellbeing

Our Work / Workplace Wellbeing

Our Workplace Wellbeing work is to help businesses and organisations obtain optimal mental health for their people.

As an employer or manager, you know it's your people who provide the greatest potential for success in your business. Maintaining optimal mental health at work is therefore too important to be left to chance; employees and employers will benefit from an active approach towards mental health in the workplace.

The workplace provides an excellent opportunity for you to become aware of your own health, mental and physical, and the health of your colleagues. Rather than burden your busy workplace with large "how to" manuals and documents on mental health, take a look at our workplace focused material that condenses and explains the extensive research on what contributes to good mental health.

Please note, we are not running mental health training workshops right now, but we do have plenty of information, ideas and resources to help you improve the mental health and wellbeing of your staff.
