Driving Good Mental Health

Author: Movember
Freightliner Trucks have partnered with the Movember Foundation this year to make an impact on men’s mental health within the Australian road transport industry.

Stephen Downes, Freightliner Trucks Australia Pacific Director is passionate about the positive impact that Movember can have on the guys out there on the road. “There is a high amount of stress in a range of transport related roles, but truck drivers face a raft of specific challenges that can really affect their mental health. Being away from loved ones for long periods of time is probably the most notable challenge, but there are also the long hours, the social isolation, fatigue and challenges relating to diet and fitness,” he said.
