Mental health at work ambassadors

We have partnered with leaders from a range of industries and sectors, who are creating positive change.

These ambassadors are:

  • reducing stigma by talking openly about mental health and sharing their personal experiences  

  • sharing strategies on how they prioritise the mental health and wellbeing of their team and themselves
