MHW Development Programme
Why was this programme developed?
Psychological health and safety (or mentally healthy work) is an emerging field in New Zealand. Many organisations are increasingly recognising the importance of how they design work and the work environment to enable them to meet their health and safety duties to prevent psychological harm, whilst also maximising wellbeing and performance of their workforce.
This programme was developed in response to requests from across the public sector for a way to consistently lift psychological health and safety capability across key organsational levels.
