Professor Allan Fels introduces the Mentally Healthy Workplace Alliance

The Mentally Healthy Workplace Alliance has been established by the National Mental Health Commission. They bring together leaders from a range of sectors including government, business and community to establish mentally healthy workplaces that support employees and their families. What could this look like? A pioneer in this movement is the Young and Well CRC who provide their staff a week of leave each year, “…for reflection, study, volunteering & other activities that aide personal growth & development. Just one way we build a mentally healthy workplace.”
