Home / The Professional / Aon teams up to address mental health
10 August 2020
Aon has teamed with a specialist company to provide an e-learning platform focussed on helping businesses and their workforces address mental health concerns.
The WeCARE platform developed by mental health services company FactorC is being offered to Aon clients and covers issues including how to identify when someone is in distress and how to follow up and provide support.
“Mental health continues to be a significant issue across all employers and industries, and it does not discriminate,” Aon Australia WHS National Practice Leader Mario Machado said.
“The current situation affecting all of us through COVID-19 has merely exacerbated and underlined the need for employers to focus on broader and more inclusive ways to support their staff members and colleagues who may need help with their mental wellbeing.”
The platform was developed by mental health advocate and R U OK Director Graeme Cowan with The Learning Hook founder Brenden Carter.
