About Mental Health Journey Australia

Why we do what we do.

What Motivates Us.

We spend one third of our lives at work. Given how much work contributes to our mental wellbeing, both good and bad, it is important to recognise that good mental health can greatly improve work productivity when managed well! We see a massive gap in mental health in the workplace, and our focus is to improve on this and educate and empower your employees.

This is the driving force behind the MHJA team training and workshops, each carefully designed to promote positive mental health in the workplace and set employees on a positive mental health journey towards growth and productivity.

My Mental Health Journey.

Everyone has a mental health journey that is shaped who they are. My name is Darryl, and here is my mental health journey. I first suffered mental health issues whilst serving in the army, at 35 I left the Army and began studying to become a nurse.

Through my work as a mental health nurse and in the resource sector within the Occupational Health & Safety field, I began to see where workplaces were failing in their employee’s mental health. I decided to educate myself further on mental health and formalised my mental health qualifications with a Post Graduate Degree in mental health nursing to sit alongside my Post Graduate Degree in OHS.

I am extremely passionate about mental health, because like many others, I have experienced it personally and I also have an extensive family history of mental illness.  To this day I also work, whenever I am able, within mental health as a casual nurse at Royal Perth Hospital. My varying life experience has made understanding people a strength of mine, leading me towards developing MHJA with a focus on promoting positive mental health in the workplace.
