October is the Month to focus on Workplace Health and Wellbeing. The theme for this year is ‘Have the conversation’ to encourage all South Australians to talk about their own mental health and that of their community.
It doesn’t matter how big or small your organisation is, or what industry you work in, workplace health and wellbeing can be a part of your everyday workplace practices.
