LET’S MAKE AUSTRALIA MENTALLY HEALHTY
BY OPENING THE CONVERSATION

3 Million Australians live with anxiety or depression and many more are suffering and feeling alone. By opening the conversation we can help remove stigma associated with mental health and mental illness, we can also educate Australians on how to help friends, family & colleagues.

Why Open The Conversation?

1 in 5 Australians are living with anxiety or depression & as many has 50% of Australians will experience a major mental health problem in their lifetime, yet stigma stands in the way of many of those in seeking the help they require. Opening the conversation is the way to to break the stigma

Around one in 35 young Australians aged 4-17 experience a depressive disorder. 

Improve The Wellbeing of Young Australians

Mental health problems are the 3rd biggest source of disease burden in Australia, after cardiovascular disease and cancer.

Isn’t it time we took this seriously and help our next generation become mentally healthy?

1 in 7 Young Australians Experience A Mental Health Condition 

13.9% of children and adolescents aged 4-17 years experienced a mental disorder, which is equivalent to an estimated 560,000 Australian children and adolescents.

Let’s show them that they’re not alone & that they can learn to manage their condition and improve their mental health.

Remove Stigma Around Professional Help

Evidence suggests three in four adult mental health conditions emerge by age 24 and half by age 14.

We act as a facilitator between not wanting to talk to anyone about mental health, to understanding it’s okay, as explained by our lived-experience facilitator.

Our Mission

To create a culture of consciously aware Australians who are compassionate, empathetic and mentally healthy. In order to create a mentally healthy Australia, first we need to break down the stigma associated with mental health.
