AMA Projects’ National Commercial Manager Mitchell Flynn said he was excited to partner with a charity that shares such strong organisational alignment.
“People are at the heart of everything we do here at AMA Projects. Since the company’s inception in 2010, the Directors have worked hard to create a people-first culture, to foster a positive and engaging work environment for our employees,”
“We actively implement a number of initiatives and procedures in the workplace directly focused to support the mental health and wellbeing of our staff and reducing the stigma surrounding mental health, particularly in a male-dominated industry within the workplace,”
“We believe the partnership with OzHelp directly aligns with our company values and are excited at the opportunity to support a charity that does such fantastic work nationally to help support mentally healthy workplaces in Australia’s high-risk industries.” said Mr Flynn.
During 2019-20, over 40,000 individuals connected with OzHelp’s services, information, tools, and awareness campaigns. OzHelp’s projects focus within male-dominated workforces where they deliver health checks, workplace wellbeing programs and evidence-based suicide prevention training. Priority industries include building and construction, transport, and farming.
OzHelp Chief Operating Officer, Ms. Louise Gilmour said she is delighted AMA Projects have selected OzHelp as their charity partner for 2021.
“Partnerships like this allow OzHelp to invest in getting more boots on the ground, right where they’re needed most. Sadly, the statistics show there is more work to do in suicide prevention and reaching people early is the key. Increasing awareness of the risk factors, educating on how to stay well even through tough times, and providing proactive supports where and when these cohorts need it is critical.”
“We know reaching out early can save a life and every dollar contributed enables us to provide these much-needed services.” Ms Gilmour said.
By donating to OzHelp, you are supporting an organisation focused on early intervention strategies to prevent suicide, raising awareness about the importance of mental health and wellbeing, and investing in the future physical and mental health of all working age Australians in high-risk sectors.
