WayAhead’s scope of interests covers a range of different issues relating to mental health and wellbeing. Our public statements, a key part of our work, are now all available online to read.
Read our response to the Federal Budget and the proposed investments in improving Australia’s mental health sector.
We have also written a statement for the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia, in support of members of the LGBTI community who experience disproportionately higher levels of ill mental health than the wider community.
As part of our WayAhead Workplaces Annual Members Forum, we shared a statement from Sharon Leadbetter, our WayAhead Workplaces Coordinator, about the top 5 ways organisations can support their employee’s mental health, with practical actions that be taken no matter how big or small the workplace.
Our Diversity and Inclusion Strategy is also available, outlining our commitment to supporting and including all members of the communities in which we work, including the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, the LGBTI community, multicultural Australia and people living with a mental health condition.
We also released a statement celebrating NAIDOC Week and drawing attention to the importance of whole-of-life approaches to healthcare and wellbeing programs within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
