Consult Australia champions an industry-led response to mental health. At our Meeting of the Minds event we shared information on cross-industry collaboration on mental health. Watch the video of the event to learn more about industry initiatives such as TrackSAFE as well as government perspectives. The 2023 event was made possible thanks to funding from the Victorian Government.
Our Striving for Mentally Healthy Workplaces Report showcases the work our member firms have done to create a work environment that builds the confidence and acceptance of employees seeking help by removing perceived barriers and simply being open about mental health. The report outlines how the learnings from these examples can be scalable across consulting firms of all sizes operating in the built and natural environment.
The Christmas Tender Campaign is our annual campaign which calls on government clients to prioritise mental health by putting a pause on all procurement tenders over the Christmas/New Year holiday period. In 2018, QLD's Department of Transport and Main Roads was the first government client to agree to the pause and introduce a policy. In 2022, Consult Australia wrote to over 100 government clients seeking a similar commitment with around 50 percent providing positive feedback.
2022 was the fifth consecutive year of the campaign, and the second year we are joined by the Australian Constructors Association, Engineers Australia, Roads Australia, and the Australasian Railway Association.
