At Resilience Agenda, we envision a world where people imagine their mental health just like their physical health.
We envision a world where people can talk about mental health in a language that is free from stigma and that is more relevant, engaging and empowering.
We envision seeing everyone talking openly and proudly about what they are doing to improve their Mental Fitness, just like they do their Physical Fitness.
Resilience: “the capacity of a system to adapt to stress, shock and setbacks and re-build itself when necessary.”
Agenda: “the things that a person or organisation considers to be important and wants to solve or achieve – also, a calendar, planner or diary for taking notes and keeping important priorities.”
How are we Changing the Meaning of Mental Health?
Resilience Agenda was founded in Melbourne, Australia in 2016 by Hadleigh Fischer.
Growing up in a family affected by poor mental health, Hadleigh wanted to find a way to share a more positive, pro-active and inspiring message around mental health with those around him.
Despite being close to mental ill-health all his life, Hadleigh didn’t feel the current approach to mental health awareness spoke to someone like him in an empowering way, or help him build the resilience to increase his mental health when things were going well.Read More
That’s how Resilience Agenda was born – to provide a common language of awareness, hope and inspiration to everybody about mental health, without stigma, without jargon, and in a way that inspires people to make good mental health an everyday ritual, before they really need it.
Each year, Resilience Agenda produces the annual Mental Fitness & Well-being Diary – a 192-page planner that teaches, guides and empowers people to take a different approach to their own mental health. Instead of waiting until crisis time, the diary guides us through a series of monthly workouts that we can use to create our own rituals and routines for better mental health & well-being.
Since 2018, we’ve sold over 35,000 diaries across the globe, inspiring people to be more positive, proactive and preventative with their approach to everyday mental health through our content, social media channels and powerful message.
Over time, we’ve expanded. Corporations across the world now trust Resilience Agenda to start a conversation about mental health with their teams through our seminars and presentations. We have also launched our podcast ‘Resilience Agenda Radio.’
Throughout 2021 we will continue to expand with our limited edition gift items, our new range of online courses, and our very first Resilience Agenda app.
