Mental Health Showcase

The Emergency Services Foundation was pleased to host our inaugural Better Together Mental Health Showcase in Melbourne on 28 and 29 March 2022. 

This unique event brought together emergency management wellbeing teams and peer leaders from across the state with experts to share, discuss, challenge, reflect, and apply.

About this event 

This event was not an ordinary conference, as it was tactical in focus. It provided the opportunity to learn from people who face the same workplace wellbeing challenges as their fellow delegates. It offered a chance to reflect on and tackle some big questions with people from across the sector and be inspired by the work of others.
