Mental health and fitness are important issues for all of us. Even though we’ve come a long way, there’s still a stigma attached to talking about these topics. PwC believe that Australians are on a journey towards greater awareness of mental health and the impact it has on us. We all need to share our stories, voice our ideas and discuss ways that together we can grow our nation’s mental wealth.
Investing in new technologies
Technology is revolutionising the way people manage mental illness and build mental fitness. In partnership with the University of Sydney, PwC has invested in an innovative joint venture, InnoWell, which is developing digital technologies to overcome the traditional barriers to quality mental healthcare access.
Drawing on our deep expertise in strategy and consulting, PwC is helping businesses, schools and universities build mental wealth. By focusing on solutions that improve mental fitness, organisations and institutions can increase retention and engagement, grow productivity and prepare their people for the challenges of the future.
Walking the talk
PwC actively supports a mental fitness and wellness agenda for its people. Like many other organisations, we know there’s always room for improvement, so we’re committed to keep raising the bar. Currently, we are focusing on improving our level of conversation and awareness on mental health issues. We are committed to sharing our approach, and our learnings, along the way.
