The Australian resources and energy industry has completed a landmark mental health research project, with data from more than 1100 employees offering unprecedented insights into stress, anxiety, depression, alcohol use, sleep issues and much more.

In 2021 AMMA partnered with specialist psychology research firm Mindshape to undertake an Australian first national and industry-specific research program, the Resources and Energy Industry Workforce and Leaders Mental Health Research Program.

Delivering meaningful findings and recommendations at both company and industry levels, the program saw Mindshape independently develop and conduct the first round of a National Industry Survey of participating AMMA members.

The research sought to investigate employees’ mental health, well-being, service intervention usage and satisfaction, psychological safety, and coping mechanisms. The results are being used to identify areas of need, patterns of strength, and to aid in the development of focused interventions.

This Summary Report provides a snapshot of key findings, insights and recommendations at the industry level.

Below you’ll find the Summary Report in interactive flipbook format, as well as a short AMMA video presenting key results. You can also download a print-ready PDF here.
