Our Values

Our mission is to create connected humans through preventative health education, and we do so by providing quality online training that harnesses the power of storytelling and science to grow Australia’s wellbeing and mental fitness.

Our vision is for more people and communities thriving. We aim to achieve this by staying true to our three core values.

Connection

We believe in the importance of relationships (with ourselves and others) in nourishing our social, emotional, cultural, and physical wellbeing.

Community

We believe in the power of groups in anchoring and shaping our experience of life (both individually and collectively).  

Co-Creation

 We believe in the value of creative minds who are authentic and respectful, working together to create a better humanity.

Collaborations

A well-connected support network is key to achieving a mentally healthier Australia. That’s why we’ve forged meaningful connections with like-minded individuals and organisations who share our vision.
