An online platform created specifically for underground coal miners to support mental wellness.

A collision of awesome conversations delivering self awareness and resilience insights through shared storytelling based on the experiences of real miners

Supporting mental wellness & awareness through ‘Lightbulb’ learning moments. 

Traditional programs of care for the individual have been reactive measures such as Employee Assistance Programs. Whilst these services are extremely valuable & important in supporting our people, we believe that a more proactive and intentional ‘community of care’ is required if we are to get on the front foot and effectively support miners mental wellness. 

The Changing Shed, accessible on any device in private, is an on online platform delivering self-awareness and resilience insights delivered through shared storytelling, simplified concepts & principles around human behavours based on some of the leading global experts & their learnings.

 

We have partnered with some of the industries most respected behavioural & psychology experts that are excited to lean in to the Changing Shed with us to participate & share their knowledge, perspective, tips & tricks.
