What is LIVINWell? LIVINWell is a 45-minute mental health educational program building on LIVIN’s mantra that “It Ain’t Weak to Speak”. The program aims to break the stigma of mental health, enhance self-efficacy (both helping yourself and helping others) and encourage help-seeking. LIVINWell is delivered by carefully selected, experienced and highly relatable facilitators with a blend of lived experience and mental health training.

Family First Community
LIVIN was started by family for family and that is why everything that we do begins and ends with family. We put our family first…period! The all inclusive LIVIN community is an extension of our family and we prioritise their wants and needs accordingly.
It Ain’t Weak to Speak
We honour our word, we walk the talk and practise what we preach. We look after ourselves as we encourage others to do the same through self-care and speaking up.
Seek to understand, not to cast judgement. Safe conflict and safe confrontation with the intent to help people to become better versions of themselves.
Keepin’ It Real
We operate in a serious and sensitive space, but we do it in a way where we stay true to ourselves. We know when to have fun, we know when to laugh but we also know when to be serious and professional.
Our culture may be casual and easy going, but as new ideas emerge, they are shared, tested and put into practice. Evidence and expertise guides all that we do, without compromising on creativity.
Better than Yesterday
Our work comes with great responsibility and we know that what got us here today won’t always be up to standard tomorrow. We strive to always be better, otherwise we know we will be left behind. We understand that we must always be learning and growing both professionally and personally. We set the standard high knowing the standard we walk past is the standard we accept.
We are accountable, If someone says they will do something, you can be sure they’ll do it. If they say they’ll be somewhere, they will be there.
1 in 5 people will experience a mental illness each year. Many suffer in silence due to the stigma and lack of education around mental health. LIVIN is helping change this. Each flag represents where we have delivered our LIVINWell In School program. Help us fill the map and spread the word that “It ain’t weak to speak”.
It costs us $19.92* per child to deliver our 45 minute potentially life-changing conversation about mental health.
Those 45 minutes include recognising problems, seeking help, and supporting others.
Those 45 minutes could stay with that child for life.
We need your help to have more conversations.
