Meet Jesse



Not really sure how to go about telling my story, but here goes... My mining career has been a short one so far, I’ve been underground (metallurgical coal) only for about 7 months now, but can honestly say it has helped saved my mental well-being. Ive been lucky enough to end up in a tight knit crew who look out for each other and are always open to help and listen. For the previous 13 years I worked in high strung corporate roles which only perpetuated my deteriorated mental condition where it was cut throat and all that mattered was results.

Without going too deep into it, my mental battles started in childhood, growing up in government housing, being very poor, drugs, crime, violence, toxic/violent family relationships, toxic romantic relationships, self harm and attempted suicides.
