Sadly, the numbers show us that, one in five of us will experience mental ill-health in in the next 12-months, and half of us will experience it within our lifetime.

At the Mental Health Movement, we believe that organisations need to be supported to help understand the importance of mentally healthy and supportive workplaces, as well as the benefits and information required to effectively implement the right mental health supports.

Our Mental Health Workplace Blueprint can provide you and your staff the appropriate interventions and resources to make your workplace more mentally healthy.

The Mental Health Movement takes a very unique approach towards mental health through our four stage Blueprint. Our Mental Health Workplace Blueprint focuses on improving mental health awareness, mental health literacy, mental health management and mental health support, as well as help-seeking behaviours within your workplace.


Stage One: Awareness

It all starts with the power of story. Understanding is the first critical step, so in this two-part stage we unpack six keys
to improved mental health and begin to understand the processes available to us to activate them.

Stage Two: Education

throughout your workplace.

MHM’s ‘Best Practice’ Mental Health Workplace Blueprint has now been implemented in over 115 companies and organisations, working with over 350,000 Australians. Mental Health in the Australian workplace is rapidly progressing in a positive way, with legislation changes, updated data and research, recommended guidelines and controls, along with the Global Pandemic of Covid-19 the world has faced over the last 2 years. Taking these elements into consideration MHM has collaborated with the University of Wollongong as our Research and Development Partner, along with Go1 as our Technology Partner and onboarded an Organisational Psychologist and Work Health and Safety Specialist.

Through these subject matter experts MHM’s Mental Health Workplace Blueprint has evolved with the evolution of three very important elements now part of the offering including; The MHM Digital Academy (Powered by GO1), MHM Connect (Powered by Cyber Clinic) and our Psychosocial Risk Assessment Training and Support Program. These elements will assist MHM and the ‘Best Practice’ Mental Health Workplace Blueprint to continue developing and maintaining mentally healthy, supportive workplace across Australia, which is ultimately changing and saving lives.

Early intervention is key to mental health challenges being addressed effectively. If your employees feel confident, they can say to their manager, supervisor or leadership team that they themselves are currently struggling to cope or are having some difficulties. It will be easier to help them address their problems while remaining in work as we know that more than 50% of Australians going through a mental health struggle or mental illness do not seek support.

Understanding the contributing factors is important, these are often a combination of difficulties experienced at work but also at home. Our blueprint looks to identify the main contributing factors to poor mental health specific to your workplace during our Mental Health Workplace Audit, giving you a better understanding of the right approach to support your workplace.

Our team understand it is often difficult to navigate the large number of support services that are available including Employee Assistant Programs, GP’s, psychologists, counsellors and psychiatrists. Mental Health Movement provides early intervention and proactive initiatives that work with your current supports like your company EAP. This assists individuals and workplaces to improve mental health outcomes, linking people to the appropriate support networks and available resources.

"The Mental Health Movement delivered a mental health initiative to our NSW and ACT businesses. Delivering a combination of mental health awareness and education to all our managers, supervisors and frontline leaders. They delivered 22 presentations to over 400 employees. The feedback was unbelievable and the positive impact within the workplace has been great. We highly recommend the Mental Health Movement if you are looking for improved mental health outcomes within your workplace."

"Mental Health Movement have made a really big impact within our workforce. They have really connected with us and have assisted us in creating a mentally healthy, supportive workplace. Dan is an inspiration to all of us with not only telling his real-life story of having a mental illness but leading the way in helping and educating so many others. As a company we would highly recommend others to connect with Dan and the Mental Health Movement team to understand and manage mental health in their workplace."

The work was of very high quality and the professionalism was second to none. MHM also work in collaboration with our company employment assistance program linking many employees to further support. This collaboration was a key driver in the huge success of the initiative. We would highly recommend Dan and the MHM to any workforce.

Keili Adams

"The wonderful team at MHM have been providing Mental Health Education and Training for the past 3 years within our Australian Business. Their relatable and “real life” approach seems to really connect with many of our employees, and in my dealings with them I have really valued the personal and caring approach they have taken to meet the needs of the teams and individuals they have worked with.  Their care for supporting us to reach our aspirations to create awareness and build capability in this space is genuine and much appreciated. Every interaction has been a pleasure and a positive experience."

Stephanie O'Dwyer

Health, Wellbeing & Innovation Manager, BlueScope Wollongong

"The feedback received from staff has been overwhelmingly positive with many resonating with the personal stories and journeys shared by the Facilitators. All of our Facilitators, Brett, Alisha, Ashton, Chris and Dan, are down to earth, genuine and relatable guys with a natural ability to connect with our diverse workforce. This was evident by the amount of staff sharing personal experiences in the sessions and some staff staying back to talk about their struggles and seek further support from the Facilitators. The workplace audit will play a key role in informing our future mental health strategy, education and training at Council and we are proud to partner with MHM over the next few years as we continue to develop and strengthen our workplace to be aware, take action, break down the stigma and support a mentally fit workforce."

Sharni Watts

Manager of People & Culture, Georges River Council

"After the first session every single employee personally thanked the business owners for organising the event and said how much they appreciated it. I think it gave us a better understanding of some of our difficulties in life, that everyone has struggles which reminded us to be good to each other. I believe it brought us closer as a group and reinforced that we all support each other. I think the whole MHM crew are amazing people doing a great job for our community and the different workforces they encounter. They genuinely care, want to help and make a difference."
