Employee mental health Mental health promotion Trades Mental health Australia

In November 2019, Swinburne University’s Social Innovation Research Institute was commissioned to conduct an independent evaluation of the Hope Assistance Local Tradies (HALT) Program.

The evaluation assesses the effectiveness of the HALT Program and makes recommendations regarding its future development.

The program was evaluated based on its capacity to influence and make an impact, for tradespeople, particularly by supporting communities to be:

  • better informed and to refer to and navigate mental health services
  • proactive around mental health issues, and
  • collaborative around mental health issues
