ASIEQ are proud to be signatories to The National Communications Charter (The Charter) which is a unified approach and promotes a common language in mental health, mental illness and suicide.
We all have a role to play in reducing stigma around mental ill-health and suicide, while also promoting help-seeking behavior through the Charter’s guiding principles and messages.
The Charter is a document designed to guide the way organisations talk about mental health and suicide prevention, with each other and with the community.
It serves as a formal commitment to working together and developing better structures and processes for collaboration. So that together we can work to reduce stigma and promote help-seeking behaviour.
Please check out their website and encourage your workplace to sign up.
