Aurecon created Mind Matters to support mental health awareness within Aurecon, and to support both employees and line managers in managing mental health concerns.
Mind Matters makes a visible, long-term commitment to improving the awareness of mental illness at Aurecon, and to making lasting, positive changes to mental illness stigma.
Research into leading practice for mental health revealed that on-the-ground support would have the most significant and positive impact for line managers and their staff. At the heart of Aurecon’s Mind Matters is the integration of Mental Health First Aid Officers into the business.
Mind Matters is currently only available in Australia and New Zealand. However, as a part of a newly introduced Wellbeing Strategy, and under the guidance of an in-house organisational psychologist, Aurecon is providing other support programmes to all its teams across the business.
Since its launch, the programme has gone from strength-to-strength, receiving the Benestar Engagement & Communication Excellence Award at the HeadFit Awards in 2021.
