Healthy Heads commences third consecutive road show

Healthy Heads is continuing its mental health push for the transport sector with its third consecutive road show

Healthy Heads in Trucks & Sheds has commenced its third annual road show as part of its 2024 National Tour. 

Healthy Heads says the focus of this year’s road show will be on connecting with the road transport, warehousing and logistics industries and providing information on mental and physical health, melanoma prevention and nutrition. 

“The road show has connected with more than 3,500 people in the transport, warehousing and logistics industries since launching in 2022,” Healthy Heads says. 

This year’s road show has visited sites in Melbourne’s western suburbs, including Altona, Spotswood and Truganina. 

Healthy Heads says the road show is open to anyone within the transport sector and will be provided access to industry-specific resources on looking after yourself and your team, tips on mental health and wellbeing, the Healthy Heads app and on-site health screening provided by Worksite Fitness and Rehab. 

Healthy Heads says its mission is to create psychologically safe and health working environments and provide people with the necessary tools to support their own mental health and wellbeing and to look out for teammates. 

“Risk factors for people working in the transport sector can include long hours, shift work, fatigue, job pressure, social isolation and exposure to potentially traumatic events,” Healthy Heads says. 

“Stigma around mental health means that not enough people access the resources and support they need. 

“Healthy Heads delivers tailored programs, resources and initiatives designed to target the many people and businesses working in the sector, including raising awareness through events, campaigns, partnerships and projects like this one.”
