About the Tri-Peaks Project
The Tri-Peaks Project is a collaboration between the Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare, the Victorian Healthcare Association (VHA) and The Victorian Alcohol and Drug Association (VAADA) to support and promote good governance and integrated practices across our three different sectors.
Over the next two years, the Tri-Peaks Project is aiming to deliver a range of initiatives to increase collaboration between the child and family welfare, primary healthcare and alcohol and other drug sectors in Victoria.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated adapting some of these activities and their timelines, we hope that Tri-Peaks Project will increase opportunities for professional development and collaboration across our sectors.
Tri-Peaks webinars are chosen to reflect cross-sectoral interests, facilitate access to critical research and data, and share sector insights and linkages. Contemporary and engaging topics are delivered by speakers including senior government stakeholders, eminent researchers, practitioners and those with lived-experience to provide access to key expertise and insights.
WorkSafe Victoria on Creating mentally healthy workplaces
As the pandemic continues to impact Australian workforces, more organisations and leaders are seeking evidence-based solutions to manage psychosocial hazards such as occupational violence, fatigue and stress. While health and wellbeing can at times seem to be catch-cries for individual responsibility, there is a need to manage these issues systemically as part of the business-as-usual.
Presented by Dr Richard Kasperczyk on behalf of WorkSafe Victoria, this session will explore the systems that impact on mental health and wellbeing and key topics including:
- mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, including roles and responsibilities;
- a systemic approach to prevention and discussion of work- related factors; and
- how to promote positive mental health and wellbeing and prevent mental injury.
This webinar seeks to provide practical prevention and intervention strategies for health and wellbeing among community services.
Research and resources
Tri-Peaks Literature Review and Summary
The literature review was undertaken to highlight the key elements of effective organisational collaboration between non-government organisations. The report is based on a desktop review of published resources on strategic collaboration; initiatives that supported clients across the health and/or human services sectors; and organisational collaborations across different sectors or disciplines. We found limited research specifically on cross-peak collaborations and their positive impacts on outcomes for children, young people and their families.
The Tri-Peaks Project has released a Board Survey to identify what support and resources board members would benefit from to support good governance practice as part of the Tri-Peaks Project.
