For the second year in a row, R U OK? and Healthy Heads in Trucks & Sheds are working together to encourage meaningful conversations and spread awareness around mental health in the road transport, warehousing and logistics industries.
On the 16th of May 2023, we encourage Members to get involved and take part in using the resources provided by this worthwhile event and help those who might be struggling.
One thing we can all do is initiate conversations with our workmates who might be doing it tough, and help them feel connected and supported. Sometimes even this small feat can change someone’s life.
The workplace resources page of Healthy Heads is a great place to start with workplace guides on how to initiate a toolbox talk, tips on how to spot the signs that someone might not be OK, and videos to help you understand more about what you can do to help improve mental health in the industry.
For more tools and resources, or to read stories about how these conversations have affected those in the industry, see here.
