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. This is why PwC is proud to be a Founding Participant of the Corporate Mental Health Alliance Australia. The Alliance is made up of 15 of Australia’s largest employers.
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
At PwC we are focussed on the mental health and wellbeing of our people, because cultures with inclusion and wellbeing are crucial for people to thrive and sustainably grow. We are recognised as a Gold Level employer in Mental Health First Aid Australia's Skilled Workplace Program, with hundreds of people trained in recognising the signs, opening up conversations about mental wellbeing and able to articulate support pathways. But like many other organisations, we’re committed to lift the level of conversation and awareness on mental health issues and share learnings along the way.
