WorkWell's Mental Health Toolkit for Small Business

Supporting small business owners and sole traders to create mentally healthy workplaces with step-by-step advice and practical resources.

Understanding the signs of a mentally healthy workplace

Understanding the signs of a mentally healthy workplace is tricky - especially when you can't see them. That's why we've created the WorkWell Toolkit, to help you control hazards that you can't see and help you on your way to creating a mentally healthy workplace and fulfilling your responsibilities as an employers.

So what are the signs of a mentally healthy workplace? There's 11 actually, and they're called many things... like work-related factors, or psychosocial hazards (if you're feeling fancy). If not managed well, there is an increased risk of work-related stress, which can lead to physical injury, mental injury or even both at the same time.

Complete the actions below to manage these factors in your workplace and create a stronger, mentally healthy business.
