Recent government inquiries, such as the Australian Public Service Mental Health
Capability Review and Wellbeing at Work Report have shed light on the pressing need
to address employee mental health as a means of ensuring an overall healthier and
more productive public sector workforce. However, many government agencies are
facing persistent challenges in addressing the stigma of mental health in the workplace,
engagement of managers and normalising conversations around mental health, coupled
with the added challenge of developing a high quality strategy to address these issues.
This Public Sector Workplace Mental Health Strategies conference is an essential
opportunity for government agencies to better understand how to navigate the issue
of employee mental health. Learn from peers across the public sector and take away
practical strategies to develop a positive workplace culture and improve employee
mental health outcomes.
