Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental health affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps define how we manage stress and make daily decisions. This week is Queensland Mental Health Week, and it is an opportune time for us to shine a spotlight on the importance of mental health in our workplace and our team's everyday lives.

Whilst it is Queensland Mental Health Week from 8-16 October, mental health awareness is a worldwide campaign. It promotes the importance of mental wellbeing globally and aims to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness.

Having a healthy sense of mental wellbeing in the workplace

Within our team, we aim to achieve a workplace with a healthy sense of mental wellbeing and remain focused on preventing employee burnout. We strongly believe that by working toward this every day, we are creating an organisation that is strong and sustainable for the future. We are always looking for ways to collaborate proactively and openly with our workers, ensuring an open-door policy where no subject is taboo for those needing support. A side benefit of promoting, building, and working in a healthy and happy environment is that we adhere to necessary legislative requirements supporting mental health awareness.

By providing knowledge to our team, teaching them to be resilient and adopting habits that support Mental health awareness, we hope to help our team thrive in 2022 and 2023.

Regardless of whether you have experienced mental illness, this fantastic global campaign encourages help-seeking behaviours when needed. We can nurture and build those around us by having a positive perspective on a globally prominent issue.
