The Heads Up initiative, launched by Beyond Blue 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.
Beyond Blue 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. Some of the resources are also Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) which means they can be imported into organisation’s own Learning Management System’s (LMS).
