Toolbox talks for union delegates

beyondblue's 'Mental health in the workplace' toolbox talk training package provides unions with free resources to equip union delegates with the skills and confidence to encourage conversations about mental health in the workplace, reduce stigma and support workers experiencing a mental health condition.

The training workshop covers three topics that union delegates may deliver to workers in three x five-minute toolbox talk sessions (one for each topic). The topics are:

1. About anxiety and depression

2. The relationship between the workplace and mental health

3. Taking action to support a worker

The training uses videos, case studies and individual and group activities to guide learning.
