We are inviting our blueVoices members over the age of 55 to share their experiences of retirement and/or being a mature age worker to assist in the development of a new Beyond Blue project.
Beyond Blue is currently developing a proposal to undertake work on a project relating to mature age workers and retirement, including:
- age discrimination and the mental health impacts of this
- the mental health impacts of a phased retirement (reducing work hours and having more leisure time pre-retirement)
- the mental health impacts of retirement and if that changes over time.
The insights of blueVoices members will help to inform the project and highlight the issues that mature age workers and retirees face. If you have experience in either of these areas, positive or negative, we welcome your input.
