HIA Apprentice Webinar Resources

Beyond Blue are proud to partner with HIA and draw attention to those who work within the building and construction industry as apprentices and may be struggling with their mental health.

We acknowledge that many HIA members are apprentices or managers who have apprentices in their team. We wanted to take this opportunity to provide some tips and resources to promote and support the mental health and wellbeing of apprentices.

Checking in on yourself

Even if you’re feeling okay, it’s always worth taking time to check in on your mental health. 

Anxiety and Depression Test (K10)

  • Answer 10 questions about how you've been feeling over the past 4 weeks.
  • Your answers help us measure your level of distress and give you a result.
  • You can then access resources and support options to help you.
  • Australian doctors and mental health professionals use this test, known as the K10. They  sometimes ask you to take the K10 and talk about it with you.

Mental Health Check-in

  • Answer 5 questions about how you’ve been feeling lately.
  • Your answers help us suggest which stage you’re at on the mental health continuum. 
  • We'll suggest resources and support options to help you now. 
  • We're testing this new tool and you can give us feedback to help us make it better.
