Workplace Mental Illness Policy and Support Plan
Every organisation is unique, and the template is designed to be customised specifically for your workplace. Importantly, the package includes up to 2 hours of consultation with a workplace mental health specialist to support you through the process and ensure the policy meets both your organisations’ needs and legal obligations.
If your employee experiences mental illness you will need to have clear information and actions for managers and other employees to follow. Your leaders will need the skills to design and implement reasonable adjustments (reasonable accommodations).
This resource pack assists you to create cultural change in your organisation to employee mental health and wellbeing.
Policies for Occupational Health and Safety often overlook the mental health and wellbeing of employees but a specific mental illness policy is a vital framework for both responding to mental health crisis in the workplace and structuring mental wellbeing initiatives.
In a recent survey 89% of companies sampled did not have clear and comprehensive workplace mental illness policies that were applied consistently.
