Innovation through collaboration

The Recover Together Hack Day 2020 brought together representatives from the NSW business, health and academic sectors to share ideas on how to improve mental health recovery at work.

Importantly, one in three participants identified as having lived experience of mental ill-health.  

The event focused on three key areas that positively impact mental health recovery at work:  

  1. promoting early help-seeking 

  2. supporting recovery 

  3. increasing awareness of mental ill-health to reduce stigma.  

Supported by mentors, the participants worked in teams to develop their project idea.

Each team pitched their project concept to a panel of judges who selected the top three ideas. The top team won a free behavourial insights masterclass.

The winning idea was JobFit, an online toolkit to support workplace adjustments, using strengths-based positive psychology approaches.  

Second place went to Recover Navigator, a digital navigation platform to create a blueprint for effective return to work, with common/shared language and resources to support recovery.  

Third place went to Can do at Work, an online platform to support help-givers and help-seekers connect and stay connected.

All Hack Day teams were encouraged to submit an expression of interest for Round 3 of the $50,000 Recovery Boost grants
