Description

"Mental Health in the Workplace"


We welcome you to join the Mental Health Foundation Australia 32nd annual Mental Health Week launch, as part of an international conversation.

This community event is held in partnership with the Victorian State Government. It is aimed at encouraging us to influence and celebrate how Aussie workplaces can contribute positively to mental health and wellbeing of all community members in their working environments. Given 45.5% of the population will experience some form of mental illness in their lifetime, workplaces have a critical role to play.

Prior to the formalities commencing at 5.00pm, for a 5.30pm start, there will be a public, community and industry information expo from 3.00pm.
