In 2021, Healthy Heads developed a Roadmap for improving mental health and wellbeing in the road transport, warehousing and logistics industries. This Roadmap has a framework of three pillars, Prevention, Protection and Support, underpinned by seven workplace strategies for creating improvement.
We’ve gathered real-life stories to help everyone better understand each strategy. We discuss why and how each story matters, and how you can get started on implementing each strategy in your workplace. A big thanks to all who let us share their stories.
