Why we exist.
Where it all started
In 2017, after nearly 10 years working fifo shutdowns and construction, having already experienced his partners attempt due to the stress of his working away, Lachie lost two colleagues to suicide. He was also later evacuated from site for mental health issues.
Since then he has gone on to become one of the leaders in FIFO mental health, creating a top10 mental health podcast, the FIFO Mental Health Summit and The Association for Mental Health in Mining.
In 2021 he won the 'national mens health champion' award, for his work in FIFO mental health, from the Australian Mens Health Forum, Australia's peak body for mens health.
In 2022 Lachie was named a Linkedin Top Voice for Mental Health and with that, made the decision to transition from FIFO Mental Health Guy, to FIFO Mental Health Group, as the first step towards finding and building a team of people who are deeply passionate about transforming mental health culture within mining.
To fly FIFO workers out better than they flew in.
To make mining the healthiest industry, mentally and emotionally, in Australia.
Growth. Respect. Discipline. Integrity. Play.
Where we're going in 2023
Internally, our goal for 2023 is to build a team who have FIFO lived experience, who also align with our values: Growth. Respect. Discipline. Integrity. Play.
In doing so, we believe we can scale our impact, serving more companies and their teams, through education, use of tools, and 1on1 conversations.
Externally, our goal is to ease the load on HSE and HR, creating certainty through our short reports, posing potential action steps and providing safe spaces for FIFO workers to speak about their mental health.
In late 2022 we hired our videographer Sam, who will also help us increase the amount of free high value content we deliver on social media, for the FIFO individual.
We hope this creates the safety of learning in their own space, at their own pace, ultimately breaking down the walls between them and the courage to engage the support they may need.
