Agency helps raise mental health awareness

A local agency is partnering with a health advocacy group to help support the local community through suicide prevention. 

Laing+Simmons Dee Why and the new northern beaches offices, along with Making Meditation Mainstream, have joined forces to grow the meditation group throughout Sydney. 

Making Meditation Mainstream’s main objective is to tackle mental health challenges through the use of meditation. 

The new partnership is a natural fit with the company’s family culture, said Laing+Simmons managing director Leanne Pilkington. 

“Improving mental health outcomes for people in the Laing+Simmons family, including our team members, our customers and the communities in which we operate, is something we’re emotionally invested in. It makes sense for us to formalise a partnership with an organisation which shares the same values and, importantly, offers a solution,” Ms Pilkington said. 

“Our head office staff as well as people from our northern beaches teams actively participate in the initiative. Societal mental health challenges have been exacerbated by the pandemic to lead many people to experience feelings of anxiety, stress, isolation, depression and more.”

Founder Jason Partington said tackling mental health challenges is the main motivation for the initiative, and meditation is one of the solutions to this complex community issue.

“We are trying to dispel the view that meditation is only for certain people with certain interests, or that it’s linked to religion or spirituality. It’s actually for everyone. Our vision is to bring meditation to the community in a different way that’s inclusive, safe and welcoming,” Mr Partington said. 

“After speaking with several real estate groups, we felt that Laing+Simmons was the best fit culturally, our values were aligned, and we could see they had a genuine interest in helping the local community.”
