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


Event Description

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 to raise concerns and bring to the attention of many key figures including heads of mining associations in WA, members of parliament, mental health officials etc. what is required for Miners’ who are such an important asset to the fabric of Australia.  


Entry is free for this event, however no donation amount is too small.
