A mentally healthy workplace is a workplace culture where people feel supported and able to do their best work, regardless of whether or not they have a mental health condition. Businesses should invest in mental health to improve workplace productivity and profitability. Legally workplaces have a requirement to eliminate and minimise workplace risks to both physical and psychological health.
