Why offer resources like these?

St John WA considers individual health to be a holistic mind-body experience. The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines mental health as a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully and is able to make a contribution to her or his community. We are more than our psyche.

Answering the Call National Survey conducted by Beyond Blue

In late 2017/early 2018 majority of first responder organisations across Australia (including St John staff and volunteers) participated in a landmark study into the mental health and wellbeing of police and emergency services. St John is currently completing Phase 3 of the study which involves analysing and interpreting the results to help inform wellbeing and support initiatives.
