Generating awareness positively (G.A.P) was developed to create awareness around mental health awareness in workplaces, social environments and in the public eye. We are NDIS friendly.
There is a 'gap' in understanding the needs of those experiencing mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, ADHD and Asperger's syndrome as often individuals who are experiencing these issues, are highly sensitive and are mindful of what is going on around them.
In fact, anyone that is aware and needing time out or a safe place appreciates a space, clinic, cafe, restaurant, gym, etc that has their needs and the needs of others in mind. What this means is that the individuals that are either at the front of house or the therapists or trainers etc, are warm, welcoming and treat you like your family.
What this means to someone that is anxious is that they can come to your businesses and know that they are in good hands because of the G.A.P stamp of approval. When someone that is experiencing mental health issues no matter what level - could just be a very stressed and tired individual needing to wind down going to a cafe or unfamiliar environment will put added stress on the person. However, a 'G.A.P approved' business is conscious of this and creates an ambient environment - the music isn't loud (how many times have you been to a cafe with the music so loud, acoustics bouncing off the walls and you can't hear your friend talking?), where you walk in and are greeted with a smile and you just feel like home? nowadays, this is very rare and as customer services is forgotten importance as most of us tune-out on social media etc and forget to tune in!
We also offer school-based programs, workplace programs, one-on-one consultations and individual online programs.
