WorkSafe Work Well’s Mental Health Improvement Fund
Organisations that can make a difference to the mental health of Victorian workers are encouraged to apply for grants as part of the Andrews Labor Government’s new WorkSafe, WorkWell initiative. The $17 million WorkSafe, WorkWell improvement fund will provide grants to community, employee and industry organisations that come up with new ways to tackle mental health and wellbeing issues among vulnerable groups of workers.
The vulnerable groups are younger and older employees, those working in industries in transition and those who serve the community in ‘frontline’ occupations, such as healthcare, teaching and emergency services. The funding will be available to groups with the ability to roll out programs across large numbers of workers, and who can offer solutions that address the organisational causes of mental health issues in each group.
