  • Understanding Vulnerability: Hosted by TIACS and TradeMutt Australia, this station delved into the power of vulnerability in fostering connections.
  • The Art of Mindfulness: Led by Fulton Hogan, attendees explored mindfulness techniques and yoga as tools for mental equilibrium.
  • Nutritional Well-being: Mood Food, together with John Holland, highlighted the significant link between diet and mental health.
  • Building Resilience: Axis and Utilita Water Solutions offered insights into managing stress and anxiety effectively.
  • Support and Resources: Diona and batyr provided valuable take-home resources and fostered discussions on the importance of mental health support, especially within the construction sector.
