Mental health initiative for struggling tradies

Tradies are being urged to check in with their workmates and make sure they are coping mentally.

R U OK? has released ‘Tradies Tools to Talk’, a conversation guide to help them determine when and how to ask their workmates “are you OK?”

Additional resources feature tradies sharing their stories and practical tips along with information about how to spot the signs someone might be struggling​, and clear pathways of support for someone who answers, “no, I’m not OK.”

For tradies, talking about feelings isn’t always easy — and that can add to the pressure for a workmate who might be doing it tough. By making time to genuinely reach out and connect, it is possible to make a difference to someone struggling with life and help them find professional support when needed.
