Workers going through depression and anxiety have been offered a free helping hand from a new training package introduced by the CFMEU and developed by beyondblue.

The ‘Mental Health in the Workplace’ toolbox talk training package includes a 90-minute session educating union delegates on how to recognise the red flags of mental health problems, the relationship between the workplace and mental health and how to intervene if one of their members are at risk.

Some of the concerns the program aims to address include a lack of awareness of depression and anxiety and the negative stigma linked to mental conditions.
