Main responsibilities and duties under WHS

The health and safety of all workers, including their mental health, is a high priority for the State Government, so it has committed to fund the Mentally Healthy Workplaces Grant Program.

Work is a large part of our daily lives and can have both a positive and negative affect on our mental health. The grant program looks to create mentally healthy workplaces by funding initiatives which improve mental health for Western Australian workers.
