About the partnership
The Gold Industry Group partnered with mental health not-for-profit LIVIN in 2017, to raise awareness of mental health and change the way the industry and society understands, perceives and interprets mental illness.
The first LIVINWell workshops were presented in June 2017 in Perth and Kalgoorlie WA, with LIVIN founders Sam Webb and Casey Lyons, to help demystify the stigma associated with mental illness and give people the basic tools to seek help and help others.
A collaboration was also formed with the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, LIVIN and the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Youth Council to produce a short film launched at Mental Health Week WA Opening Ceremony in Kalgoorlie.
