Mental Health and Wellbeing Toolkit

This toolkit helps councils and other local government organisations:
  • Prevent and minimise psychological injuries
  • Maintain a mentally healthy workplace
  • Develop awareness about the causes of psychological injuries along with preventative and management strategies.
It includes information about developing, implementing and evaluating health and wellbeing programs as well as providing samples and templates to assist this work. 
Also included are other learning and self-assessment tools which can be readily accessed and used - often at no or minimal costs - to enrich the health and wellbeing of staff.


This toolkit was developed in partnership with Local Government Super and StateCover.
