QLD Mining Industry Health and Safety Conference 2017

Researchers from the University of Newcastle and the Hunter Institute of Mental Health showcased some of their innovative approaches to enhancing mental health within the mining industry at the recent Queensland Mining Industry Health and Safety, 6-8th August. Their interactive booth invited conference delegates to take part in a psychological and/or physical challenge to gauge their interest in health and wellbeing. Mental health was very much on the agenda of the 2017 program and it was great to hear it being discussed further among peers.
