Resourceful Mind is a Peer-Support program developed by Lifeline WA in partnership with the Chamber of Minerals and Energy WA (CME) in an ongoing commitment to support the mental health and wellbeing of resource sector workers.
Resourceful Mind was created in response to research that showed the resource sector workers face unique challenges that puts them at greater risk of mental ill health.
Experienced crisis supporters from Lifeline WA, deliver training to develop peer supporters known as “Minders”. These Minders are the go-to people, their work mates can seek help from to navigate life and work challenges.
Through a virtual membership program, Minders are given thorough training and ongoing support.
Lifeline WA is grateful for the ongoing support from DMIRS in promoting the Resourceful Mind program within the resources sector.
