Communicating about mental health and suicide


Everymind is a leading Institute dedicated to the prevention of mental ill-health and suicide. We have been delivering successful mental health and suicide prevention programs for over 30 years.

The way we communicate about mental health and suicide matters. To help build skills and knowledge, Everymind and Healthy Heads in Trucks & Sheds have collaborated to create a training program tailored to support workers in transport, warehousing and logistics. This evidence informed training focusses on building skills to manage conversations with colleagues you may be worried about.
