Funding boost to improve workplace mental health

Eight organisations will receive more than $350,000 through theNSW State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA) Recovery Boost grants to improve workplace mental health.

The Recovery Boost program provides up to $50,000 to organisations to implement initiatives that prevent mental distress or aid recovery.

The program is part of NSW Government’s Mentally Healthy Workplaces Strategy 2018-2022, a long-term vision to create mentally healthy workplaces across NSW.

SIRA said, “the funded programs include tailored assistance for rural sole traders, yarning circles for First Peoples, support for deaf and hard of hearing workers, and targeted intervention for police officers with stress disorders.”

“Benefits and lessons from these projects will help broaden the evidence base of what works to support mental health recovery at work.”
