Peninsula Health is leading a project on behalf of a consortium of 12 Victorian Health Services, aiming to develop mentally healthy workplaces with cultures that promote and facilitate employee mental health and wellbeing. All knowledge and resources will be shared across this group of more than 80,000 health workers.
The 'We Care' project will take a multifaceted approach by focussing on increasing knowledge and competencies within each organisation for individuals, managers and executives to prevent, identify and manage mental health injuries and illnesses within the workplace. The project will expand on and develop new employee Peer Support Programs and will trial 'tap out' and roster change systems in high risk areas as well as trialling staff sensory rooms to reduce the impact of workplace trauma.
An online tool helping you take your first steps towards a positive, mentally healthy workplace. The toolkit brings together resources and ideas that have worked for businesses like yours.
