Build a Mentally Healthy Workplace

A symposium for HR professionals, business leaders & mental health workers

How to build a culture of well-being

With 1 in 5 people suffering from mental illness, the impact and cost to our workplace is increasing at an alarming rate.

Organisations are struggling to influence positive change in workplace mental health – and it’s the leaders who are responsible for prioritising the conversation.

To start the conversation and make change happen, you deserve access to the latest tools and knowledge to build a thriving organisation by providing support to your people.

The premiere 2019 Workplace Mental Health Symposium was the beginning of our journey to build a culture of well-being in all workplaces.

We are currently in the process of planning our 2020 conference and look forward to updating you shortly.
