NEW Year. NEW Name. SAME Purpose.

NEW Year. NEW Name. SAME Purpose.

NEW Year. NEW Name. SAME Purpose.

Posted: 06/01/2022

In 2020, we started Mindsight. In realty, it started over 20 years ago, when founder Dave, met Ian in a registration line on his first day at Uni.

One simple sentence “Got a pen mate?” started a conversation and a connection. Through Uni and the years after, we were close. Mates for the distance. The proper sort! In September 2011, Ian took his own life.

I struggled, hiding from how I really felt for a long time. It wasn’t easy, but with the support of the people around me, I started to talk more openly about how I was really doing. Usually over a brew or a beer.

If I could work through this, it felt like others could too. I wasn’t an expert, but with time and the right direction, I knew that, like me, everyone could learn more about managing their own mental health, what expert advice is available and what genuinely supporting others looks like.

Dedicated to flipping the focus on mental health, in and beyond the 9 to 5, Mindsight set out to remove stumbling blocks, ditch tick box and reduce stigma. It was unique. But it wasn’t enough!

In 2021 Six Connections was born. Initially with beers and coffees, designed to help start the conversation around mental health. In normal places like the pub or at the footy. Products linked to conversation, to get the conversation going, with linked web support and training to back up the chat.

People liked it. IN FACT, people LOVED it! So, we've connected it all together.

On January 6th 2022, Mindsight became Six Connections Community. The social part of the family. Always giving back to make real conversation accessible to all. Fittingly on Ian’s birthday. Where it all started!

Six Connections is more than a beer, workplace wellbeing or a one-off course. Six Connections Community is more than just charity. Together we’re building a genuine, positive culture, that starts with you.

Be part of a legacy. Powered by my mate!
