Healthy Heads announces new partnerships

Healthy Heads

Mental health organisation Healthy Heads in Trucks and Sheds is entering a number of new partnerships coming into 2024, joining forces with a trio of industry bodies.

It has formalised its partnership with the Australian Logistics Council, which it has worked alongside since inception. The two will work together progress joint programs and campaigns that benefit the transport sector.

Particular focus areas include creating a thriving and productive workforce, including increased diversity, and assisting to address the skill and capability gaps facing supply chain and logistics.

‘’We’re really excited to embark on this strategic partnership with Healthy Heads in Trucks & Sheds,” says ALC CEO Hermione Parsons.

“We understand just how important wellbeing and mental health are, especially in our industry where our people often work in demanding and isolated settings.

“I’m certain our work together will make a real difference in boosting workforce vitality and positively enhance Australia’s supply chain and freight logistics industry.”

Healthy Heads has also partnered with HVIA ahead of TruckShowX in May this year. The pair of organisations initially partnered at the 2023 Brisbane Truck Show.

“Healthy Heads has hit the ground running and is doing incredible work to create awareness, promote practical tips for the workplace, and publishing supportive, tailored materials for the industry,” HVIA CEO Todd Hacking says.

“We know mental health is a challenge for every workplace and by formalising our partnership, we hope to be able to increase the accessibility for these valuable tools for HVIA members.

“One of our first opportunities to showcase the partnership will be to shine a light on mental health during TruckShowX, which coincides with R U OK? in Trucks & Sheds Day on Tuesday 14 May 2024.”

The last new partnership announced is with Transport Women Australia Limited. The pair will work together to raise mental health awareness in the trucking industry, with Healthy Heads offering TWAL more access to their resources.

“Transport Women Australia Limited is very excited to be partnering with Healthy Heads in Trucks & Sheds,” TWAL chair Jacquelene Brotherton says.

“The partnership will add value to both organisations and offer opportunities for our TWAL Members. We are looking forward to an exciting collaboration and working together for the future of our industry.”
