Not surprisingly given our own project, we are big supporters of any other projects that sits at the intersection of mental health and the creative industries.

This is because such collaborations open up enticing opportunities for people like myself (a psychologist) to consider new ways of talking about mental health and wellbeing.

One such project, which has been running for the past couple of years is ADMENTAL. It is running again in 2019. Details below.


“Working in mental health I’m used to focusing on my consumers wellbeing. This event helped me to take a step back and have a look at my own for a change.” AdMental Attendee 2018

“90% of AdMental attendees said they would attend the next event”.

Don’t miss out!

AdMental 2019 will see young creatives make their mark in the advertising world. Guided by industry professionals, watch the two teams battle it out ‘Gruen’ Style as they pitch on ‘how to sell positive wellbeing.’

This year there is a special focus on ‘Ageing Well.’

How do we challenge Baby Boomers to think about staying connected beyond their working lives?

How do we prevent them becoming the next generation of socially isolated older South Australians?
