The spur: Standard

A periodical of what we're up to, our thoughts on social change, and everything else.

Hi there,

In this issue of The spur: Standard, we are thrilled to announce the expansion of our team with a new Social Media Manager, Vivian Vu. Vivian will follow and engage with our audiences on all social media platforms, improving our social outreach efforts — she's here to bring our stories to a wider audience. Welcome, Vivian!

We are also excited to publicly launch Sticks & Stones, with our first event to be held in August at the GOMA Rooftop! This event will be a celebration of our work over the last 11 years, and will take an interactive glimpse of where we’re going next with this new exciting project. Stay tuned for photos and snapshots from the evening in our next issue!

This week we are also showcasing The B Well Coalition's Information session; a chance for those of you who are passionate about mental wellbeing in the workplace to hear about how your organisation can join a coalition working towards fostering better mental wellbeing within their workplaces. The Coalition provides a community of leadership, data, and resources to support their efforts. Lean more about the event here.

Last but not least, you are more than welcome to keep up with our latest projects and journals below.

Goodbye and see you in the next Standard!

Case study

Pivoting from brand strategy to full digital platform for mental health

MATES · Wellsaid

MATES needed a symposia brand strategy that would appeal to two very distinct audiences: mental health researchers and blue collar industries.

With the advent of COVID, the branding strategy expanded into the development of a full digital platform for industry mental health insights and knowledge.

After an extremely successful launch of the platform v1.0, MATES is already looking ahead to future capacity and developments. Stay tuned!
