Resourceful Mind

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.

Hear from other Minders

"I was motivated to apply to become a Minder because I lost a work mate to mental health battles a couple of years ago and after it happened I couldn't help but wonder if I and his other work mates if had had the tools and the knowledge to be able to help him deal with his mental health struggles, if perhaps we could've changed the outcome for him..."

"When I heard that Lifeline WA would be delivering the training I couldn't think of a better training provider to be honest. Lifeline are the ones that deal with these types of conversations day in day out"

~ Sarah (Minder | Resourceful Mind)
