Master mental toughness and thrive in the face of change

Resilience provides a foundation for good mental health and wellbeing, helping you navigate through the challenges of fast paced and ever-changing work environments. Approximately two in five Australians aged 16-85 will experience a mental health condition during their lifetime. As part of the manufacturing industry, which employs 185,000 Queensland workers, we collectively play a vital role in protecting and supporting our community’s mental health and building the resilience of our workforce.
