The NSW Government are currently developing a state wide Mentally healthy workplaces in NSW 2022 Strategy (Strategy) and work program to support and enable employers and workers to create mentally healthy workplaces.
WayAhead Workplaces has contributed as a key expert and influencer by consulting with SafeWork through the development process and as a participant of the Mentally healthy workplaces Summit. WayAhead Workplace’s collaboration also extended to helping to develop a Benchmarking Tool to measure the capability of NSW businesses to create mentally healthy workplaces. The NSW Government recognises the importance of partnerships and collaboration to improve the way mental health is managed in workplaces. The NSW Government will continue to work with experts, advocates, industry, insurers, employers, workers including people with a lived experience of mental illness, and other regulators to design and deliver the Strategy.
