Supporting Mental Health in the Workplace -A Commitment We at AWA Stand By
As we celebrate World Mental Health Day, we am proud to share the journey our company has taken in prioritizing mental health and well-being in the workplace. At AWA, we understand the importance of fostering a work environment that not only values our employees’ skills but also cares deeply for their mental and emotional health.
In a world where the stigma surrounding mental health is slowly breaking down, we are proud to be members of Mates in Mind, an organization that advocates for and supports mental health in the construction and related industries. This World Mental Health Day, we want to emphasize that caring for one’s mental health should be a shared responsibility – not only a personal one but also one for the community.
Why Mates in Mind?
Mates in Mind is an initiative that holds a special place in our hearts. It aims to raise awareness, address the stigma, and improve mental health and well-being in the workplace. This resonates deeply with our company’s values, where the well-being of our staff is of paramount importance.
We believe that mental health should be part of the daily conversations at work, just like safety and productivity. Our partnership with Mates in Mind has equipped us with valuable resources, training, and support to ensure our staff knows that they are not alone in their mental health journeys.
Encouraging Open Conversations
One of the crucial steps in addressing mental health concerns is to foster an environment where employees feel comfortable discussing their mental health.
This World Mental Health Day, we remind our employees to look out for each other, to listen without judgment, and to seek help when needed.
It’s Okay Not to Be Okay
On World Mental Health Day, we want to emphasize that it’s okay not to be okay sometimes. We all have moments when life feels overwhelming, and that’s when our support for one another is most valuable.
We are proud of our staff for their resilience and commitment to their work. We encourage them to take a break when needed, speak up when they’re struggling, and seek support if they find themselves facing mental health challenges.
A Call to Action
As we celebrate World Mental Health Day, we encourage other organizations to join us in taking the mental health and well-being of employees seriously. It’s a call to action to support and uplift one another, not just on this day, but every day.
Together, we can break the stigma surrounding mental health and create workplaces where employees thrive both personally and professionally. Let’s make mental health a priority, not just today, but every day.
AWA are committed to promoting mental health and well-being in the workplace. Join us in this mission to make mental health a priority for all.
