The impact of Covid 19 is so much more than a physical health crisis. It will continue to put a strain on the mental wellbeing of individuals and communities for years to come, especially health workers, managers of health facilities, people who are looking after children, older adults, people in isolation, those who have lost loved ones and members of the public at a more general level.
Why Communications is proud to be supporting The United Project a charitable foundation uniting the world’s workplaces to improve mental health & prevent suicides. The United Project is set on reversing mental illness by:
- Building further levels of awareness, acceptance and support of mental health in the workplace.
- Helping identify those at risk in the workplace and provide a pathway to professional support.
- Promoting the importance of and build capabilities that help establish unity, belonging, connectedness, gratitude and individual value.
- Building skills to better identify and be more mindful of negative and unhelpful thoughts, while learning how they can be reframed to limit their impact.
- Building greater resilience and psychological flexibility so management and staff can look to take advantage of constant challenge, change and uncertainty confronting them.
- Collaborating and partnering with existing providers to maximize our reach and effectiveness.
As part of our Pledge 1% commitment, and intention to support the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals, Why Comms will be donating on-going pro-bono hours to run the ambassador program for The United Project. The ambassador program has public profile individuals on board that include a Miss Universe Australia model, a singer, elite Olympians and a Paralymic competitor. Their role is to support The United Project to advocate for positive mental health, raise awareness of related issues and support programs such as our gratitude points.
We are proud to be United.
