Henley extends support for tradies’ mental health
Leading Australian home builder, Henley Properties Group, has extended a partnership with TIACS and TradeMutt to increase mental health support to tradies and other blue-collar workers.
TIACS (This Is A Conversation Starter) is an industry-funded, not-for-profit organisation providing free, confidential mental health counselling to Australia’s truckies, tradies, rural and blue-collar workers. Henley will contribute over $120,000 in financial support to TIACS, funding an additional 1,300 hours of conversations and counselling.
“Tradies in the building and construction industry continue to struggle with the immense pressures facing the sector,” said Head of Partnerships for TIACS, Jason Banks. “As a mental health support line, we need donations to provide our counselling services. This contribution will help us increase the level of services we offer to help more people.”
Henley Properties Group CEO, Antony Blackshaw said there had never been a more important time to help tradies. “We are absolutely committed to supporting our team and network of tradies, suppliers and colleagues across the industry,” he said.
