It is highly likely that Aurecon managers will supervise an employee with mental illness at some point in their career – whether they know it or not. Mind Matters was created to support mental health awareness in Aurecon, and to support both employees and line managers in managing mental health concerns.
At the heart of Aurecon's Mind Matters is the integration of Mental Health First Aid Officers into the business. 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.
The success of Mind Matters is measured through Aurecon's annual staff Safety Index Leadership survey which includes indicators on the level of confidence on where managers and staff can go for support, as well as confidence in intervening to support others with mental health concerns.
