Health and Wellbeing Strategy
From March 2020, the Monash Health and Wellbeing Program pivoted to supporting staff wellbeing while working from home – predominantly through online engagement platforms, including Workplace. A suite of physical, mental, general, nutritional and occupational health activities were delivered online to Monash staff.
Professor Kim Cornish, the new Chair of the Monash Wellbeing Subcommittee led the development of the Monash Health and Wellbeing Strategy, with a six-step action plan to improve mental health outcomes, and 2021 saw the launch of the Monash Health and Wellbeing Strategic Action Plan 2021-2025.
Monash additionally has a suite of policies, procedures, and targeted leave entitlements to support the health and wellbeing of students and staff.
