About us


Australia’s Biggest Mental Health Check-in was inspired by the team at Vital Conversations, based in Subiaco, Western Australia. Led by Peta Slocombe, the team is committed to helping people achieve excellent mental health.

Our aim is to promote the benefits of psychological health as the cornerstone to a satisfying and productive life.

Vision

To create global mental health action. We want to help people be proactive in tracking their mental health.

Core purpose

Australia’s Biggest Mental Health Check-in is a way to maintain our well-being or to improve it. It’s more than a conversation, it gives people objective and professional tools to assist them in tracking, assessing and improving their mental health. Checking in with our personal mental health should be done regularly, not just when we may be struggling. Checking in is for all of us. The earlier we check, the earlier we can make the often small changes needed to help us cope and stay strong.

We are checking in together to send a powerful message to the 1 in 2 Australians who will struggle with their mental health that they are not alone.

Testimonials

Adrian Firth
Adrian Firth
National Marketing & Communications Manager, CFC Group
We work in industries that are linked to increased mental health issues and our business leaders wanted to be proactive in tackling this across the Group. For many people mental illness is hard to self-diagnose so the check-in is a valuable tool for employees to see how they are travelling in terms of their own health. The program also helped start the conversation and hopefully break down some of the stigmas that come with asking a workmate how he or she is going. From a business perspective the program and team at Vital Conversations have helped us to better understand this area and what we need to do to ensure we have a healthier workforce in the future.

At my work we are also seeing an increasing interest in mental health awareness coming from people wanting to not only care for their colleagues, but importantly their family and friends. I'm more than happy to be an ambassador and look forward to seeing more people checking their mental health.
