WorkWell's Learning Networks bring workplaces and experts together to share ideas and knowledge, and provide advice and support to implement workplace initiatives that create safe and mentally healthy environments for identified Victorian working populations.

Network planning using post it notes

Learning Network Chairs bring together groups of employers to build their capacity to create mentally healthy workplaces. They will implement initiatives that influence the work related factors that contribute to stress in the workplace. As a result these networks will contribute to the evidence base on creating and maintaining a mentally healthy workplace.

Learning Networks are linking more than 2000 workplaces to collaborate on practical steps to prevent mental injury.

Chairs have 3 months to develop a program management plan in order to secure funding for the remainder of the two year scheme.

The selected organisations are:

  • Emergency Services Foundation
  • CGU Workers Compensation Victoria¬†
  • Give Where You Live
  • Australian Retailers Association
  • Housing Industry Association
  • Australian Hotels Association
  • CommuniCorp
