MORE ON MENTAL HEALTH & WORK WELLBEING
Almost half of all Australians will experience mental ill-health at some point in their life. Work has an important role to play in our mental health and wellbeing.
While our workplaces can increase our risk for mental and physical harm, they can also offer us protection and decrease this risk. Work provides social contacts, feelings of purpose, increased self-esteem and life satisfaction.
Understanding the different factors that increase or decrease risk is vital to securing worker physical and mental safety.
ABOUT NO STRESS M8 & ANYWISE
This website was originally created as part of the project 4WM - Work, Worker and Workplace Wellbeing in Manufacturing. The project aim was to better understand the work-related factors impacting worker mental health and wellbeing in Victoria's defence manufacturing sector. The website was developed as a tool to prevent mental injury in the future.
This project was originally funded under the WorkSafe Victoria's WorkWell Mental Health Improvement Fund by Rapid Context an Australian research consulting firm with significant subject matter expertise in organisational culture.
In 2023, Anywise acquired the IP rights to the site and its underpinning research in order to broaden its impact across other sectors and regions.
