Mental Health Awareness Morning

Sep 29, 2022 | Corporate, Event

With ‘R U OK?’ Day earlier this month, we hosted a Mental Health Awareness Morning for our staff. We were able to create an opportunity to discuss mental health with the aid of suicide prevention. We had the opportunity to start a conversation about mental help and connecting with someone to provide appropriate support. Part of this is about the importance of informal support networks and being aware of those around you.

The morning was an opportunity to get involved and inspire everyone to learn when and how to have a conversation. A conversation that could change a life – a family member, friend, or work colleague. By asking the simple question ‘R U OK?’ you can provide the necessary support to someone. Most importantly when someone is identified as struggling or in early signs of crisis. It helps break down the feelings of isolation.

Our Electrical Construction, Mechanical Construction, and Service and Support teams gathered for an early morning BBQ breakfast. We held an informative prestart concerning the day’s topic of ‘R U OK?’ Day. Our Admin, Operational Support, Sales Solutions, and Engineering and Technology Teams gathered at lunchtime for pizza and a discussion. The key message at both events is that social connectedness and positive help-seeking can assist people in crisis. Overall, it is a community responsibility.

On behalf of Triple i and its employees, a donation was made to the R U OK? Organisation. This will go towards helping prevent suicide and provide resources.
