Sanderson, KA and Martin, AJ and Warnecke, E and Dawkins, S and Peebles, D and Bartlett, L and Crawford, J and Memish, K and Newstead, T and LaMontagne, AD, Workplace mental health: Co-production of an action plan for Australia, Work, Stress, and Health Conference: Contemporary Challenges and Opportunities: Conference Program, 7-10 June 2017, Minneapolis, Minnesota, pp. 2. (2017) [Conference Extract]


Statement of problem: There is international momentum to improve workplace mental health (e.g. OECD 2014; 2015) through integrated strategies that incorporate primary prevention as well as promoting positive approaches and supporting individuals (LaMontagne et al., 2014; Page et al., 2014; Reavley et al., 2014). Clear guidance is needed at a national level on translating the evidence base into priorities for action. This project provided an opportunity for researchers, policy makers and practitioners to collaboratively identify a set of priorities for the effective management of employee wellbeing in an era of high demands and scarce resources. The goal of the project was to produce a national Action Plan for workplace mental health in Australia, collectively authored by participants in a white paper format a solutions-focused position paper that succinctly captures a problem and proposes a range of concrete actions.
