Empowering leaders deal with mental health in the workplace

AP Psychology & Consulting Services are developing a scalable and evidence-based solution to build psychologically safe and thriving teams. The Applied Mental Health Leadership (AMHL) project is focused on the University sector with five large universities participating in the pilot.

About the project

The AMHL project aims to achieve the following outcomes:

  • increased leadership commitment to building better work cultures and psychologically safe places to work
  • enhanced capability and confidence of leaders to support and protect the psychological safety and mental health of their employees through a digital intervention that promotes practical improvements to workplace factors and practices to support psychological safety and mental health
  • improved leadership and employee awareness of the work-related factors that underpin psychological safety and impact mental health in the workplace through gamified and socially incentivised learning and practice

The AMHL project will be delivered in two phases over two years.
