Making mental & emotional health mainstream

I'll get your people talking about their mental health.

In 2017, after nearly 10 years of working FIFO shutdowns and construction, having already experienced his partner’s suicidality due to working away, Lachie Samuel lost two colleagues to suicide and was later evacuated from site for mental health issues.

Current Work:

Since then Lachie has gone on to become one of the leaders in FIFO mental health, creating a top mental health podcast, the FIFO Mental Health Summit, and founding FIFO Happiness, The Association for Mental Health in Mining & The Red Earth Project.

In 2021 he also won the 'National Men’s Health Champion' award, for his work in FIFO mental health, from the Australian Men’s Health Forum, Australia’s peak body for Men’s Health.

Lachie's mission, beyond being a good man, father and partner, is to make mining the healthiest industry, mentally and emotionally in Australia. Lachie will take your crew from 'hard to crack', to opening up about how they feel.
