Resource Minds is an evidence-based mental health and well-being program which is uniquely tailored around the risk and safety factors affecting all workers, on any site.

Toolbox Talks

Resource Minds Toolbox Talks are designed to be integrated with existing OH&S programs on physical health and safety.

An integral part of the Resource Minds program is the suite of 13 ToolBox Talks created specifically to be delivered on site over the duration of the entire program.

Each Toolbox Talk covers a topic relevant to mental health awareness, prevention, early intervention strategies and identifying pathways to help.

 

The first Toolbox Talk will be delivered by RRMH consultants during their first site visit, with subsequent ToolBox Talks being delivered by Presenters who have volunteered to take on this important role.

Each ToolBox Talk comes with its own topic-specific video and the Presenter’s Guide provides notes and additional information to assist the Presenters to deliver an informative Talk.

Depending on the site’s roster the ToolBox Talks can be delivered either fortnightly or monthly.
