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.

 

How does the training package work?

Union educators deliver a
90-minute training session
to union delegates

Union delegates deliver three x five-minute toolbox talk sessions
to workers

 

Three different versions of the resources have been developed to represent different union group audiences, and provide solutions and benefits that directly address issues raised by union delegates and members.
