OzHelp to replace Trans-Help

Mental health organisation, OzHelp, is extending its programs to the transport industry to equip personnel with support and practical skills to improve their wellbeing.

“For 15 years OzHelp has had a strong presence in the construction and mining industries, and over time we have seen increased demand for accessible evidence-based mental health services and suicide prevention education programs in many Australian workplaces,” said Tony Holland, CEO of OzHelp.

OzHelp will now be expanding the delivery of lifesaving mental and physical health programs to continue to improve the lives of professional drivers.

“We hope that by increasing physical and mental health literacy and encouraging help-seeking behaviours, we are giving employees the resilience to access support for themselves and their colleagues,” said Holland.

OzHelp programs include a Workplace Tune-Up (WTU) initiative, which is an online physical and mental health screening tool that generates personalised recommendations from support channels including registered nurses and wellbeing coaches.

This program is designed to help employees, while providing employers with a confidential snapshot of the overall health of their workforce to accurately inform, identify and evaluate wellbeing strategies.

“After seeing what OzHelp have provided to other industries, Trans-Help has decided to close their doors and make way for OzHelp to provide their services to the transport industry, taking it to a new level,” said Di Carroll OAM, founder of Trans-Help.

“The services and programs they can provide to all of our drivers and their families will continue to improve the mental and physical health of the industry and have the capacity to save more lives.”
