A poor mental health environment at work can lead to good employees leaving, as well as a general loss of morale and productivity.
It is estimated that 45 per cent of Australians will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime.
Heads Up helps workplaces around Australia take a proactive, preventative approach to dealing with mental health issues. A Beyond Blue initiative, Heads Up is a program designed to raise awareness among employers and employees surrounding mental health issues.
VACC has partnered with the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry to provide information, guidance and solutions for members and their employees.
Members are encouraged to visit the Heads Up website, which includes policy, toolkits, scripts and video case studies.
