SuperFriend expands its role in influencing widespread systems change in workplace mental health across Australia and internationally by participation in formal and informal collaborations and alliances.

Through our continued involvement in the Victorian Workplace Mental Wellbeing Collaboration, the LeadingWell Queensland Collaboration, Suicide Prevention Australia, the Mentally Healthy Workplace Alliance and the Health Benefits of Good Work, we are able to work with our collaborators to influence government, business leaders and industry.

SuperFriend is also a member of the International Initiatives in Mental Health Leadership (IIMHL), a coalition of eight signatory countries that organises systems for international innovation sharing, networking and problem solving across countries and agencies.

The Mentally Healthy Workplace Alliance

As a member of the Mentally Healthy Workplace Alliance, we support all Australian workplaces through the Heads Up Initiative and the National Workplace Initiative to create mentally healthy workplaces for business and workers – strengthening our community and our economy.

Chaired by Lucy Brogden, Chair of the National Mental Health Commission, the Alliance brings together business, unions, the mental health sector and regulators to promote mentally healthy workplaces. We know that work has a profound impact on our mental health, and with 12.6 million Australians employed, it is an ideal place to prevent mental illness and help people recover when they are unwell.

Health Benefits of Good Work

The Health Benefits of Good Work (HBGW) is an initiative from the Australasian Faculty of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (AFOEM) of The Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP). This initiative is based on compelling Australasian and international evidence that good work is beneficial to people’s health and wellbeing and that long-term work absence, work disability and unemployment generally have a negative impact on health and wellbeing. SuperFriend is a signatory to the Health Benefits of Work Consensus Statement, along with many of Australia’s leading organisations.  Its purpose is to bring together a wide range of stakeholders to affirm the importance of work as a determinant of health.

Suicide Prevention Australia

Suicide Prevention Australia (SPA) is the peak body for suicide prevention in Australia, representing over 240 Members and Associates.

As a member of SPA, SuperFriend works to build a stronger suicide prevention sector, a more aware and engaged community, and a more effective regulatory and funding environment.
