Our mission is to improve the mind health of all Australians and bring about a significant
reduction in our suicide rate
in Australia today.
In 2003 after several years building a successful career in London, Anthony returned to his home town of Adelaide. He was a typical 28-year-old, meeting the stereotype of an ambitious male seeking his dream job. Privately and shamefully, however, he was living a daily battle with anxiety and depression.
During October 2003, overwhelming shameful for the way he was feeling and scared of being judged, Anthony continued to ignore the signs. On the 7th November 2003, sleep-deprived, suffering with depression and on medication, at 7pm that night he made a significant attempt on his life. A stroke of sheer luck saw him survive. It was during his incredible five year recovery, he discovered and developed a rehabilitation program that today is known as the Lifeback Tracker.
Numerous close friends and business peers began to ask Anthony to meet for coffee, during which they would confide in him and reveal their own mental health challenges. Each time, he shared his own steps back to good mind health, inspiring and motivating others to follow his own steps in recovery.
4 Steps to Better Mind Health
The Lifeback Tracker is a tool available to anyone confronted by life challenges affecting one's thoughts and feelings. Good mind health and wellbeing has become Anthony's life passion. Today he is on a mission, having been given a second chance at life, to help others avoid going down the same path he did.
There is NO difference between
a physical or a mental
They both need fixing.
Mind health and wellbeing is one of the biggest challenges facing corporate organisations and our community today.
