Health and Wellbeing
Resources to support your mental, physical and financial wellbeing, and guidance on where to seek further information and support.
The APS Health and Wellbeing page is a platform for evidence-based resources to promote a one-APS approach towards supporting your health and wellbeing.
Maintaining good health and wellbeing is essential to overall health. People who feel healthy and well are likely to be more engaged, productive and satisfied in the workplace. They are better equipped to manage stress, make sound decisions, handle challenges and conflicts, and maintain positive relationships with colleagues. This can create a more positive work environment, improve overall morale and build a positive work culture.
Investing in your health and wellbeing is crucial for overall quality of life. A healthy diet, increased physical activity and stress-management techniques can help you stay mentally and physically healthy, confident and productive.
Resources to support mental, physical, financial and psychosocial health can be found below, as well as details on where to find additional information, support and services. These resources may assist you to navigate your own wellbeing or support someone else’s health and wellbeing.
Many agencies provide an Employee Assistance Program (EAP), offering confidential, short-term, and work-based counselling services. This service is available for employees, and in most cases immediate family members. To learn more about your agency’s EAP, check your agency’s intranet.
