Mentally Healthy Alliance

The Mentally Healthy Workplace Alliance

Comcare is a member of the Mentally Healthy Workplace Alliance. The Alliance aims to partner with all Australian workplaces through the National Workplace Initiative to create mentally healthy workplaces for business and workers—strengthening our community and our economy.

The Alliance is chaired by Lucy Brogden, Chair of the National Mental Health Commission and it brings together business, unions, the mental health sector and regulators to promote mentally healthy workplaces. Work has a profound impact on our mental health and with 12.6 million Australians employed, it is an idea place to prevent mental illness and help people recover when they are unwell.

A National Workplace Initiative

Over the last two years the Alliance has prioritised work on a National Workplace Initiative. This has involved a discussion paper, a literature review and targeted consultations with stakeholders. The outcomes of this work found an appetite for a national initiative for all Australian workplaces.

The Alliance has completed the scoping work and is committed to extensive stakeholder engagement to gather input about how the National Workplace Initiative might be progressed.
