Bio

Ben Broadbridge is the founder of ‘Beyond All Bounds’, an organisation focused on delivering the Mental Health First Aid course to the greater community. Ben’s vision is to provide education for people who wish to be better equipped to assist someone experiencing a mental health problem, in turn assisting in the reduction of Australia’s suicide rate.

Ben has spent the last 12 years operating businesses while also working in performance-driven sales roles, business development and FIFO construction roles. He understands the significant impacts that stress and isolation can have on one’s mental well-being.

Ben’s parents both served in the Australian Regular Army for over 20 years each; along with a great number of his friends who also served. This has enabled him to relate with people who have served in the military and the negative effects that existing stigma can have on individuals who feel social pressure to "get on with it" and not seek professional help.

When a friend of his was involved in a serious car accident resulting in a traumatic brain injury, Ben left his profession to join a team of in-home support workers. During this time, he gained the skills to understand and work alongside someone having suicidal thoughts, living with PTSD and severe depression. Ben has lost friends to substance abuse and has suffered first hand from suicidal depression. It is this lived experience that gives Ben unique insight and context when delivering the MHFA course and how his passion to help others manage mental health illness was ignited.

So... Have you ever worried about a person’s mental health and asked yourself:

How do I help?” or “What would I even say?” maybe it's "What professional help exists?"

If the answer is yes, Ben encourages organisations and all individuals in the community to holster these practical skills in their 'tool belt' so they can support those in need. Whether it be accredited Mental Health Officers in the workplace, empathising with the needs of clients or assisting a loved one, everyone can empower themselves with this knowledge, apply it immediately and make a real difference.

Apart from delivering the two-day 'Standard MHFA for Adults' course, Ben also encourages businesses and organisations to engage with the FREE 90-minute seminar 'Engaging Senior Leaders'. This short time investment helps you to understand how adopting MHFA training and guidelines on a process and procedural level at the heart of your business can create an abundance of positive outcomes. This is a great opportunity to highlight your organisation's current approach to mental illness in the workplace and take meaningful action.

Ben endeavours to create a safe and interactive learning environment during his courses and can modify his teaching style to cater to a variety of audiences. Please contact Ben directly or connect on his social platforms for courses and info.
