Mental health of young workers was the focus this week as the NSW Government, Safework NSW, UNSW and the Mental Health Commission of NSW joined forces to host a series of forums titled ‘Let’s talk Young Workers’ Mental Health Collaboration.’
Minister for Better Regulation Matt Kean said SafeWork NSW is co-hosting along with the university, and the Mental Health Commission of NSW.
“There are more than half a million young workers in NSW so understanding how they think, feel and operate can make an enormous difference to workplace mental health.”
“It’s about fostering open conversations between young workers and their employers so they feel better supported in the workplace.”
