Our purpose is to inspire and equip individuals to eradicate the stigma of mental illness and create workplaces that are life-enhancing.

We stage free events to inspire, equip and fuel innovation through sharing and collaboration.

In a landscape burgeoning with “experts” on mental health, we stand proudly as a community of “learners” in relentless pursuit of the most progressive ideas and solutions.  

We don’t sell products or services and so we are completely independent. We occupy the space of connector, curator, convener, collaborator and a catalyst for the difficult conversations on mental health topics that are still taboo.

We hold three types of events:

  1. Minds@Work LIVE - Storytelling events that inspire everyone to break the stigma of mental illness and make mental health a topic of everyday conversation.

  2. Minds@Work LEARN - Masterclasses to equip us with knowledge and tools to enhance mental wellbeing.

  3. Minds@Work LAB- Open space events to connect our community so we can collaborate, unearth and share best practice, and invent better, healthier ways of working.

We rely completely on the generosity of our speakers, venue providers and corporate sponsors who enable us to stage these free events and create a space that is inclusive and accessible to all.
