Take action

Ambassador program

Our ambassador program involves leaders who are willing to share their knowledge and experience about mental health, to show why you should take action, what you can do and what your workplace has to gain.

You might not know why mental health at work matters or you might know that a mentally healthier workplace is good for your workforce and your business, but you don’t know where to start. One place you can start is to learn from others who are committed and leading the way in workplace mental health. That’s where our ambassadors can help.

Our ambassadors are committed to proactively promoting mentally healthy workplaces and driving widespread improvements. They speak out and share their insights, experience and resources online. They lead by example and collaborate with and mentor others, to create more mentally healthy workplaces across NSW.

Of particular importance to Ross is taking preventative action to maintain positive mental health, but also to normalise mental illness so that workplaces can create an environment where it is okay for people to put their hand up and ask for help.
