AV Family Safe Space is designed to help educate and inform you, our Ambulance Victoria (AV) family members, about how best to support your loved ones, while also ensuring that you get the support you need.
AV family members perform a valuable role in supporting the mental health of our people, but they can also be impacted by the challenges that our employees and volunteers face. This site is all about connecting you with support services when you need them.
We are delighted to share AV’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Action Plan 2022-2025, this 3-year Action Plan has a goal to create a workforce supported to protect wellbeing. We want our people and their families to have the knowledge, tools, support and services they need to manage their mental health and wellbeing.
We have built the plan around four key pillars:
- Prevention and education
- Early intervention
- Building on our strengths
- Partnering for success
You can download your copy of the plan on the AV website Mental Health and Wellbeing Action Plan 2022 – 2025.
