About Us

Our Vision

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.”
