Join a discussion group

We are running some small, casual discussion groups at the University of Newcastle.

Our aim is to hear from workers with a recent work-related injury about what the recovery process has been like for you.

You will also hear about the new program we are making to help workers maintain good emotional wellbeing and mental health during recovery from injury.

If you would like to be involved, simply fill out your details using the secure form below. Someone from the research team at the University of Newcastle will get in touch within the next few days.

We won’t share your details with anyone or send you any unwanted mail. If you prefer, you can also get in touch directly by emailing
