Year in Review Annual Report

Today, the OzHelp Foundation (OzHelp) released its Annual Report highlighting the services
and support it has provided in 2020-21.

Over 48,000 individuals connected with OzHelp’s services, information, tools and awareness campaigns. OzHelp launched a new program for Truck Drivers, delivered CARE for Rural Australia in Queensland and continued to support the Building and Construction industry with its health screening and training programs.

Despite the challenges of the pandemic lockdowns and restrictions, OzHelp increased its reach by 20 percent and reported a 19 percent increase in demand for its programs – health screening, training, and support.

OzHelp would like to acknowledge the hard-working and generous people and partners that make this work possible – its funding partners and financial supporters; the dedicated OzHelp Board; service team and office staff; professional training and counselling service providers; and its research, program and referral partners across the sector.

Collectively this support assists OzHelp in improving the mental health and wellbeing of those at risk of suicide.
