Media Super has joined the Industry Funds Forum's mental health foundation SuperFriend.
The national initiative aims to improve the mental health and wellbeing of industry super fund members, employers and staff, and to reduce the incidence of suicide and the impact of mental illness on individuals, their families and workplaces.
Media Super is the eighteenth industry superannuation fund to join the mental health initiative which partners with mental health service providers and other stakeholders to improve the delivery of services and provide referral pathways.
Media Super chief executive Graeme Russell said it was an important industry initiative that helped raise awareness of the community impact of mental health issues and suicide.
SuperFriend chief executive Margo Lydon said the organisation was looking forward to working with the fund, its partners and members to improve mental health and wellbeing.
"We are dedicated to delivering workplace mental health and wellbeing initiatives that make a real difference in people's lives," Lydon said.
"The collective and ongoing support of our partners demonstrates considerable commitment to improving mental health and wellbeing for the many members and employers that they represent."
The industry fund has 110,000 members and 14,000 employers.
