Psychology Week 2021

Working minds

In its 19th year, Psychology Week is exploring the role psychology plays in the workplace.

There’s no doubt that the last year has changed how we live and work. For office-based workplaces in particular, more people are working from home, and many of us are reliant on technology more than ever to talk to and work with colleagues. The grounds are shifting, and this is having a massive impact on how we think, feel and behave at work.

In responding to these changes, there are many ways that psychological support and interventions can play a part.

During Psychology Week 2021, we will be:

  • Showing you what tools you can use to create a positive, mentally healthy workplace where the wellbeing of employees is at the heart
  • How these tools can be applied to different industries and workplaces
  • Provide insights into how workers feel about work and how this impacts their mental health.

About Psychology Week

Psychology Week is an annual awareness event organised by the Australian Psychological Society (APS), the peak body for psychologists in Australia representing over 27,000 members.

Australians benefit from psychological knowledge every day, in almost every setting – from classrooms, sports-fields or courtrooms, to private clinics and large hospitals.

Every year, Psychology Week shows Australians how psychology can help them to lead healthier, happier and more meaningful lives.

How you can get involved

We will be sharing information on how you can get involved soon. But in the meantime, you might want to start thinking about hosting an event at your workplace or in your community.
