WayAhead Workplaces (WHPN then) feature specifically in the Mental Health Commission New South Wales strategy document "Living Well"
In most workplaces, physical and mental health are viewed as separate areas of concern and the focus is very much on physical health and safety. This needs to be expanded so that practices that promote mental health and wellbeing are as embedded in workplace culture as those that surround physical health and safety.
Some progress towards this shift is under way. The Mental Health Association NSW is demonstrating leadership in workplace mental health and wellbeing in the community-managed sector. It co-ordinates the Workplace Health Promotion Network, formed in 2006. Collaboration between government and industry will also be required if we are to foster mental health and wellbeing in all workplaces. NSW Health’s Get Healthy at Work initiative, for example, will provide participating businesses with information and tools to address mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
