Woolworths Wellbeing.

A quick chat can mean everything.
When someone isn’t themselves, it's often colleagues who first notice. And it’s amazing how much difference a small chat can make. From that simple insight, we helped create an international movement.

We created and helped implement the ‘I am here’ mental health program to mobilise the Woolworths team to support and guide each other. Organisations such as Lifeline, Beyond Blue, R U OK? and Suicide Prevention Australia were consulted during its creation.

Team members were invited to complete a voluntary 20-minute online course in how to give effective support. Completers received an I am here pin, identifying them as someone who could help.

More than 21,000 people completed the strictly voluntary training course, well above the ambitious target of 10,000. 38% of course completers have registered their interest in further mental health training.
