Workplace wellbeing

The workplace should be an ideal location to develop mental health initiatives, however, most mental health programs currently used in Australian workplaces are not evidence-based, cannot be implemented on a large scale or do not meet the requirements of male-dominated industries.

The emerging knowledge surrounding the unique characteristics of male-dominated workplaces together with recent developments in e-health and mental health prevention provides a rare opportunity to develop a radically new type of mental health program. The proposed Well@Work program is based on a game changing approach that incorporates the latest technology to provide mental health screening and interventions in an individually tailored way.
