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. 

We can start doing that by sharing stories & experiences, educating Australians on strategies we can implement to manage and improve our mental health. We are an Australian charity organisation designed to help improve the understanding, education and awareness of mental health.
