Need help?

It’s important to remember that you don’t need to be in crisis to seek help.

Whether you have had a bad day, need someone to listen, or just want to have a chat, OzHelp is here to support you.

Our team of qualified staff understand the unique challenges of the industry and can offer free phone support and counselling to workers and their families in building and construction, and transport and logistics industries. After business hours, our phone lines are diverted to Trauma Centre Australia where their team of trusted psychologists continue to provide tailored support to those who need it.

For emergency assistance, call 000 immediately.
