Breakthrough Mental Health Research Foundation Visits MaxMine Adelaide

Last week we had the pleasure of hosting John Mannion and Sam Elliott from Breakthrough Mental Health Research Foundation for a visit at our Adelaide office. John spoke, as a guest speaker for our weekly #ginandtopic, to our team about the impact of mental illness on our community and how we as individuals can help make a positive difference. We all received an insight to the critical research being undertaken by Breakthrough Mental Health foundation and their ultimate goal to prevent and cure mental illness through applied research.

As a supplier to the mining sector we know the increased risk of isolation for site based work and spending time away from loved ones. At MaxMine we take mental health seriously, and treat it as one component of a ‘safe working environment’. A timely reminder to look out for each other as South Australia enters lock down for covid-19 and our team in South Africa are impacted by the ongoing civil unrest. We all are more isolated from our normal office lives and need to look out for each other.

We would highly recommend getting in touch with the team at breakthrough mental health for any organisation, to help spread their message and support a great cause where we can have impact.
