Mental Health in the Wine Industry

Mental Health in the Wine Industry

Finlaysons, Australian Lawyers with a specialty in the wine sector, are convening a workshop at the 18th Australian Wine Industry Technical Conference on the critical issue of Dealing with Mental Health in the Wine Industry.

Mental health has always been an issue in agricultural industries, with its inherent risks, but it has become more of a problem in the wine industry in recent years with the stresses of drought, bushfires, COVID-19, hailstorms, floods and the demise of the China market.

Mental health is a problem not just for the individuals concerned and their families, but also as it impacts wine business performance. The workshop aims to highlight the issue and help individuals and their employers to deal with it. The objectives of the workshop are to:

  • give individuals some tools to assist them to deal with stress and maintain and improve their mental health; and
  • give employers some tips as to how to assist employees who are dealing with personal challenges and help them to maintain a mentally healthy workforce.

The speakers will include a clinical psychologist and a workplace lawyer with much experience in this area.
