Breaking the stigma around men's mental health
As an organisation, Westvic Staffing Solutions are getting onboard with this incredibly powerful and important social campaign which is raising awareness to men’s mental health, and we are encouraging other businesses in the community to do the same. It is important that we are all making it aware that IT IS okay to not be okay and IT IS okay to ask for support.
