Healthy Workplaces Toolkit
The Healthy Workplaces Toolkit provides emergency departments with an operational resource to better support the mental health and wellbeing of their staff, reduce the risk of mental health concerns and suicide, and increase the capacity of leaders, peers, and individuals to respond.
The long-term goal of this project was to support good mental health and to prevent mental health concerns and suicidal distress among doctors, nurses and other emergency department (ED) staff. This is not only important for the individuals concerned, but also for the quality of care provided for patients and families.
Everymind received Commonwealth funding and the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (ACEM) support for this activity as part of the Australian Government Health Specialist Training Program. Additional funding was also leveraged under the Prevention Hub from the Australian Government Department of Health.
