Being accepted into the greater community creates friendships, experiences and connections that improve lives and build positive futures. In a time of uncertainty, support for the mental health of all Tasmanians has never been more vital.

Across Australia, we have been asked to exercise physical distancing, and for some this can be very isolating. Social interaction is an important part of our day to day lives and we know that it is a key factor in our mental health and wellbeing.

We now ask for your generosity so we can continue to undertake research to support mental health awareness and intervention now and into the future.

The prevalence and impact of mental ill-health is a globally significant social, health and economic problem. In response, Menzies is establishing research programs focused on awareness, workplace management, use of support services and outcomes of people at risk of and experiencing mental ill health in Tasmania and the wider Australian community.

At Menzies we are planning a significant initiative involving businesses and organisations across Tasmania. This research will be aimed at understanding the ‘state of play’ in workplace mental health: the key risks being faced, and strategies and practices employed in different work and industry contexts, from sole-traders and small businesses to large government and corporate work settings.

Your support will ensure our ability to provide fellowship support for our mental health researchers, working tirelessly to further protect our community.
