Easternwell shares videos to support mental health awareness

Easternwell continues to raise employees’ awareness of the mental health support available both within the company and the community by sharing videos filmed at a recent mental health event.

The videos share the stories of former Sunrise Way clients Justin Heal and Max Evans about how they overcame their addiction and the importance of seeking help from family and friends and professional organisations like Sunrise Way.

Sunrise Way is a community based, not for profit drug and alcohol rehabilitation service focused on supporting stronger, healthier communities through rebuilding lives affected by addiction.

Easternwell General Manager, Kyle Koziol said: “We are grateful to our guests from Sunrise Way who shared their personal experiences with mental health, how they overcame their addiction and ways we can look after our mental health.”

“We care about our people, and by sharing these videos with our employees and the wider community, we can continue to support positive mental health.”

The videos were supported by funding from the Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN under the Australian Government’s PHN Program.

Employees have access to several initiatives within the company to support their mental health, including free access to the company’s Employee Assistance Program, a Flexibility Policy that enables employees to create more work-life-balance, and a health and wellbeing program that provides employees with educational resources, access to support services, face-to-face consultations and a variety of other initiatives aimed at improving our employees’ physical activity, nutrition, financial support and mental health.

Easternwell is a subsidiary of Broadspectrum, providing innovative solutions across the social, defence, property, infrastructure, resources and industrial sectors.
