The Government will support employers, industries, small businesses and sole traders to create mentally healthy workplaces that enable workers to achieve their best possible mental wellbeing, and that attract skilled staff, encourage innovation and boost productivity.

This initiative will deliver a suite of practical tools and guides to the most effective strategies for creating mentally healthy workplaces and best ways to put them into action. It will establish a nationally consistent approach to mental health in the workplace, and will provide businesses with assistance and guidance on how to build work environments that promote good mental health, reduce mental illness, and help people recover when they are unwell.
