The Heads Up initiative, launched by beyondblue in partnership with the Mentally Healthy Workplace Alliance (MHWA), encourages all people in every workplace to take action on mental health. The Heads Up website gives individuals and organisations free tools and resources to help them manage mental health issues in the workplace. Join Heads Up and keep up to date with the latest developments in workplace mental health. Joining will also allow you to create and save a tailored action plan for your organisation.
beyondblue has developed a number of free and innovative online programs for a variety of workplace audiences, to increase understanding of mental health in the workplace. The online programs can be completed by individuals in the workplace or in the privacy of the home.
National Workplace Program
The beyondblue National Workplace Program (NWP) is a training program specifically for workplace settings. It aims to increase the knowledge and skills of staff, managers, human resources (HR) and organisational leaders to address mental health conditions in the workplace.
Doctors’ Mental Health Program
Research has highlighted high rates of suicide, depression, anxiety, substance use and self-medication throughout the medical profession. To address these issues, beyondblue
developed a national Doctors' Mental Health Program in consultation with the medical profession, to promote the mental health of doctors and reduce their risk of suicide.
Police and Emergency Services Program
The beyondblue Police and Emergency Services Program was established to address the high rates of mental health conditions and suicide among Australian police and emergency services personnel. The Program focuses on police, ambulance, fire and rescue, and state emergency services, and includes current and former/retired workers, volunteers and their families.
