Fostering a supportive environment for mental health issues in the workplace.

As awareness and understanding of mental health issues has increased, fostering a supportive workplace is more important than ever. Focusing on human rights, anti-discrimination and social inclusion has brought a change in mental health policy, with KPMG at the forefront.

For example, in Australia mental health is one of four focus areas for both the internal Wellbeing and external KPMG Corporate Citizenship strategies. KPMG's focus is to create a positive workplace where extraordinary people feel supported through proactive prevention and support.

KPMG in the UK has introduced the Be Mindful program to promote positive mental wellbeing and create a safe space for colleagues to share their experiences and gain support regarding mental health.

And the Chief Mental Health Officer of KPMG in Canada has focused on providing tools and resources to foster a mentally healthy workplace, while continuously trying to reduce stigma and break the silence.
