The Chamber Wellness Fund helped Queensland chambers of commerce to help build awareness of mental health services, and to upskill chambers and their members to support business owners.

Successful chambers received grants of between $2,000 and $5,000 to develop and implement local mental health wellness initiatives tailored to the small business owners and operators in their area.

The $150,000 fund was part of the Queensland Government's Small Business Support Network which aims to support the mental health and wellness of Queensland small businesses and promote and improve access to available support services.
