This experience has led him to the conclusion that Mental Health is the single biggest people issue facing our community in the 21st century. In fact he refers to this as an epidemic! These challenges include:

  • The increasing prevalence of Depression and Anxiety in our population,

  • The simple fact that many organisations create mentally unhealthy environments that contribute to this epidemic
