30 October - National Symposium on Miners' Mental Health and Wellbeing


Event Description

As part of the busy month, the MHFA has planned to run a set of conferences in each state and territory on one issue in relation to mental health. A study conducted in 2018 suggests that psychological distress is more prevalent in the mining workforce, than in the overall Australian Population (Bowers, 2018). Taking this into consideration, in Western Australia we have decided to host a ‘National Symposium on Miners’ Mental Health.’

This conference aims to discuss the issues miners’ face, particularly in relation to their mental health, what services are available when they require assistance, what can be done to better these services and in general, what they require as a community. This conference will be an excellent avenue for members of the community to raise concerns of what needs to be done in the area of mining and mental health.
