During the last 8 years spent working away from home, I, Ian Mclean (Founder) noticed a STRONG need for a PROACTIVE approach to mental health in the FIFO work-space.
While suffering from my own challenges with mental health during my FIFO career - I felt helpless and ill equipped to tackle the challenge of getting back on my feet. Hence creating HitchBox.
With FIFO workers suffering TWICE the risk of mental health deterioration compared to normal 9-5 society, we need to band together as a community and attack the issue as a collective.
So, what are we doing?
