How TIACS Works
TIACS is a free, mental health counselling service for tradies, truckies, rural and blue collar workers.
After successfully launching their social enterprise workwear company TradeMutt, founders Ed and Dan saw a great need to remove the barriers that prevented hard working Australians from accessing professional mental health counselling.
TIACS removes the physical and financial barriers to accessing help through a simple text and call service directly to professional counsellors.
TIACS is not a crisis support service…
There are other great services that help with one off support. We provide counselling that aims to support your mental wellbeing for the long term. We provide up to 8 free sessions via text or call with the same counsellor
Text or call
Whether you would like to talk on the phone or find it easier to text, we can do both.
Match up with a counsellor that best suits your needs and talk to the same counsellor each time
Free and confidential
There are no costs involved - TIACS is free and you can remain completely anonymous
We care about your experience and ensuring that you receive the highest quality care
Who can use this service?
TIACS provides professional mental health counselling to Australia’s blue collar community. TIACS also provides counselling services to anyone who may be a carer, friend or loved one of a blue collar worker who is doing it tough.
At TIACS we won’t turn anyone away. We provide support of up to 2 counselling sessions where we provide information and resources and connect people to the right service they may need.
