Hadleigh Fischer is the Founder and Managing Director of Resilience Agenda, one of the world’s leading positive mental health awareness social enterprises. Resilience Agenda’s diaries, notebooks and gift items have inspired over 35,000 customers around the world, 25,000 supporters on social media, and support from some of the world's best known companies. The Resilience Agenda online community is now the world’s most prominent and active leader of the global Mental Fitness movement.

Hadleigh’s popular talks, keynotes and seminars inspire people to conceptualise and work on their Mental Fitness just like their physical fitness. The key insight is that we all have mental health, not just those people with a diagnosis. That’s because mental health is about more than just mental illness. Good mental health is about building the resources, habits and rituals of self-care, recovery and resilience.  Over time this creates a normalised, inclusive, engaging and purpose-driven approach to mental health & well-being with others.

With his unique story-telling style, evidence-backed approach, and practical no-nonsense strategies, Hadleigh shares how we can all better understand, improve, and talk to others about mental health in a positive, proactive, preventative way – free from jargon, stigma and ambiguity.
