Australian Wind Services are proud to announce we have been awarded as a Gold Skilled Mental Health First Aid Workplace!
The award acknowledges our significant achievements in developing Mental Health First Aid skills in our team and embedding a sustainable and effective program.
AWS recognises the lack of knowledge regarding mental health issues as well as long standing stigmatising attitudes about mental illness. Negative attitudes towards mental health may prevent people from seeking help early, seeking the best sort of help and also providing appropriate support to work colleagues simply because they do not know how.
This is why AWS is committed to ensuring our workers are trained on recognising signs of mental health and the appropriate steps to assist someone in this situation.
