David Burroughs

Chief Mental Health Officer, Westpac

I am a senior psychologist with 20 years’ experience across community, military and workplace mental health. My specialty is operating at the nexus of clinical and organisational psychology to help design, implement and evaluate strategies to support positive workplace mental health and proactively manage mental ill-health. My career has given me incredible opportunities to develop my knowledge and capabilities through working and collaborating with international leaders in workplace mental health. I have been lucky enough to partner with leading organisations across many sectors to help develop, review, refine, implement and evaluate psychosocial/systems based approaches to workplace mental health that have improved the lives of tens of thousands and thousands of people, improved workplace culture and productivity levels, and led to significant business performance outcomes across dozens of organisations.
