Roy Morgan has partnered with the University of Western Australia and Australia’s leading mental health organisation Beyond Blue to interview over 21,000 Police & Emergency Services employees, volunteers and former employees regarding their mental health and wellbeing. The "Answering the Call" research explored in detail the stresses and strains impacting on those who often find themselves on the front lines in responding to traumatic and life-changing events in our community. The good news is that "Answering the Call" reports that more than half of all employees in these industries, and two-in-three volunteers, have reported high levels of resilience in dealing with experiences. Of course, there is always more that can be done and one-in-three employees report experiencing high or very high psychological distress – much higher than the one-in-eight amongst all adult Australians.
