In Australia, it is estimated that around 20% of the population experience a mental illness in any given year. This number is even higher for truck drivers. Some studies estimate that up to 50% of truck drivers experience a mental illness at some point in their careers.
There are many reasons why truck drivers are more likely to experience a mental illness. They often spend extended periods away from home and family, which can be lonely and isolating. They also face many challenges on the job, such as long hours, difficult driving conditions, and great responsibility. All these factors can contribute to stress and anxiety.
Netstar has always been a company that cares about its employees and its community. That’s why Netstar is working to break down the stigma attached to it when it comes to mental health.
At Netstar, we believe that mental health should be discussed more openly and honestly.
Unfortunately, the stigma around mental health means that too many people suffer in silence, unable to seek help because they’re afraid of being judged. We want to change that.
That’s why we support mental health organisations like Gotcha4Life.
Gotcha4Life is an Australian not-for-profit foundation dedicated to the goal of zero suicides by delivering mental fitness programs that engage, educate, and empower. These programs create meaningful mateship, build emotional resilience, and strengthen social connections in local communities. The charity focuses on early intervention and the power of prevention through connection.
Here at Netstar, not only are we proud donors to Gotcha4Life. We fully believe in their vital work to break down the barriers that prevent people from seeking help and provide essential support to those struggling.
That’s why we are promoting that Gotcha4Life has partnered with Isuzu. One of the leading suppliers of trucks and other vehicles in the transport industry, to raise money for its cause.
Like Netstar, Isuzu has a long-standing commitment to social responsibility and supporting the communities in which it operates.
