Wellbeing resources

In line with our culture of care, we provide helpful resources to support the ongoing mental health and wellbeing of our employees and contractors, and their family members. 

The resources on this page provide quick access to a range of mental health and wellbeing information for work and life. Each can be used as a preventative or support tool to guide individuals through a specific issue, transition period, or to improve general wellbeing.


BHP Mental Health Month 2022

Creating a mentally healthy workplace

Mental Health has been a company priority at BHP since 2015. A big focus of our strategy to date is to acknowledge and destigmatise and support those experiencing mental ill health.

We are also committed to creating a work environment which creates a greater sense of wellbeing and where people feel energized and valued.

May is BHP's Mental Health Month. Thousands of our team members will participate in the campaign which aims to promote open conversations, reduce stigma and empower our people to manage and prioritise their mental health.

Global Business Collaboration for Better Workplace Mental Health (GBC)

BHP is a founding partner of the GBC – the first business-led alliance that aims to advocate for and accelerate positive change for mental health in the workplace worldwide.

In January 2021, Chief Executive Officer, Mike Henry, joined global leaders from Deloitte, HSBC, Unilever, Salesforce, BP and Clifford Chance to sign the GBC pledge: a commitment to making mental health a visible priority in every region in which we operate.

Movember, mustaches, people

BHP is proud to support the Movember Foundation

2021 is the sixth year BHP supported the Movember campaign. It’s a great opportunity for all employees and contractors to shine the spotlight on men’s mental health and suicide prevention, as well as physical health. There were four ways to take part – grow a moustache, Move for Movember, host a Moment or Mo your own way. Our teams collectively raised over $455,000! Thank you to all who participated and donated to make our campaign such a great success.

Mental Wellness Roadmap

BHP has developed a six week Mental Wellness Roadmap Campaign.

The campaign aims to provide you with mental health and wellbeing tools to navigate the recent challenging times faced by BHP, the wider community and the world, associated with COVID-19.

Tackling mental health is as important as looking after your physical health and the weekly roadmaps have daily tips and exercises to improve your overall mental health and wellbeing, and that of those around you.

Importantly, the resource is available through the website to allow our employees, contractors and their family to utilise the suite of material across the six week campaign.
