Mental Health Illness
The Magnitude of the problem

In any given year, 1 in 5 Australians aged 16-85 experience a mental health illness.

Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians aged 25-44.

54% of people with a mental illness do not seek any treatment.

Every day in Australia, at least 6 people die by suicide.

Depression is the #1 cause of non-fatal disability in Australia (23%).

There are approximately 65,300 suicide attempts in Australia each year.

Eleanor – Suicide Prevention Co-Ordinator

I recently completed a Mental Health First Aid 2-day course with Ben as our excellent facilitator. Ben was well organised, compassionate and compelling and I found the course extremely valuable both professionally (I am a Suicide Prevention Coordinator) and as a human living amongst other humans! I highly recommend Ben as a mental health trainer and hope to see Beyond All Bounds continue to grow and deliver this course to more people.

Karyn – HR Manager

Ben is an engaging, knowledgeable facilitator. Ben managed the group well and responded to all questions and discussions with openness. The course is applicable to all workplaces and personal situations and would be beneficial to anyone and everyone. Learning about Ben’s personal story was of particular interest and it was heart-warming to see him take on a role as an educator, with clearly so much to offer. Ben’s innate characteristics make him a natural facilitator.

Ben was a very knowledgeable, engaging and open facilitator – it was a surprise to learn that this is a new venture for him! He created a safe space for all participants to be inquisitive and shared personal stories which added unique perspectives to the rich learning environment he created. I highly recommend Ben for any organisation seeking a high impact and practical Mental Health First Aid training course!

Susan – Yogi, Meditation Teacher

Ben is a very knowledgeable trainer and delivers the course in an engaging and informative manner. I believe all businesses need to train staff to be able to deliver this much needed assistance to people in and outside their workplace. As a small business owner, I found this to be an invaluable tool, as well as clarifying some myths around mental illness. Absolutely, 100% recommend Ben and Beyond All Bounds.

Jake, NLP Master Coach

Absolutely loved this course! Ben was an amazing instructor and shared his real-life experiences with us by being vulnerable with his own stories. This allowed us to connect and understand him. This course gives you a massive insight into everyone’s day to day struggles. Having this course under your belt equips you with the basic tools to help people in need. Highly recommend!

Jessica, Occupational Therapist

I’ve been on many courses, but these last two days it was almost like I was learning everything again for the first time but from a different perspective, and this was profoundly powerful. The instructor taught compassion and empathy just through his conviction alone. His passionate guidance, bold authenticity and honesty were invaluable.

Jessica, Occupational Therapist

Mark, Life Coach

Attended a Mental Health 2-day workshop by Ben recently and was extremely impressed by not only the delivery but his ability to share his own personal experiences which made it significantly more real. This is a must-do course and would highly recommend Ben and B.A.B.

I spent my weekend studying the mental health first aid course. This is something I’m very passionate about and as someone who has suffered from depression/anxiety, I learnt a lot and found this course super rewarding. I highly recommend this course to everyone.

Alice, Mother

An excellent course. I now have the knowledge to recognise someone with a mental health problem. Wished I had them before my daughter was diagnosed with bipolar and depression.
