Abstract

Rationale and goal of the symposium: This symposium will describe priorities for implementation of an integrated approach to workplace mental health developed by the University of Tasmania’s Work, Health & Wellbeing Network in collaboration with national and international researchers, practitioners and policy makers (Martin et al., 2017). An integrated approach to workplace mental health seeks to simultaneously prevent work-related harm, to promote the positive aspects of work, and to manage mental illness as it manifests in the workplace. Of these three key areas, promoting the positives is the newest priority for implementation. The collection of presentations will contribute to further understanding of this priority. Speakers will describe assessment methods, intervention designs, and health and economic outcomes from intervention trials that apply positive-based approaches to enhance workplace mental health and wellbeing. Intervention strategies described will include a focus on the psychological strengths and resources of individuals and teams, and alternate modes of intervention delivery. Collectively, the presentations will offer new insights into positive-based approaches for promoting workplace mental health and wellbeing, and importantly, provide evidence-based practices that respond to the rapidly changing nature of work.
