Staywell program launch & Rail R U OK? Day events

On Thursday 11th April 2019, on Rail R U OK? Day, we launched our mental health and wellness program – Staywell. This signalled the beginning of a roll-out of a number of initiatives, one of which was the go-live of our Staywell Hub. The hub contains a growing number of resources for TfNSW staff, including links to online information, tips and tools to help you stay well and support others, and links to two e-learning modules which are now available. We encourage you to visit regularly, as we are constantly updating this page.

The launch also marked the opening for the Mental Health First Aider (MHFA) EOI process. As a MHFA you will be an avenue of support for staff to be able to confidentially discuss issues and receive advice on next steps. To find out more about the role please click here. EOIs will close 2nd May, so if you are interested please ensure you apply before this date.

A number of TfNSW locations celebrated Rail R U OK? Day by hosting morning/afternoon teas or barbecues, and had speakers provide some information on the Staywell program. Rail R U OK? Day is an annual industry-wide event to inspire rail staff across Australia and New Zealand to look out for one another during life’s (including worklife’s) ups and downs by asking “Are you OK?” and really listening to the answer. This ties in well to a couple of the aims of the Staywell program – that being to raise awareness of mental health and to provide staff with tools to be able to support each other.

Thank you to our staff who helped organise these events at the various locations.
