Set up a monthly donation to help save lives

Team United Development Program

About 50% of us will experience a mental health issue in our lifetime.

Two thirds of us don't seek help.

Your workplace is probably losing up to 15% productivity due to mental illness.


Please ask yourself these questions


Does my business model rely on the healthy minds of our leaders and staff?


Are we adapting and responding as well as we could to the changes and uncertainties upon us?


Do I feel my people are connected to our higher purpose, our strategy and their teammates?


Can I confidently identify who in my team is at risk of mental illness, or is suffering heightened levels of distress and anxiety?

The Team United Development Program objectives

  • To build further levels of awareness, acceptance and support of mental health in your workplace.
  • To help identify those at risk in your workplace and provide a pathway to professional support. (This is often very difficult to spot!)
  • To build greater resilience and psychological flexibility so management and staff can rise to respond positively in the face of constant challenge, change and uncertainty.
  • To promote the importance of and build capabilities that help establish unity, belonging, connectedness, gratitude so individuals feel worthwhile and valued.
  • To build skills to better identify and be more mindful of negative and unhelpful thoughts, while learning how they can be reframed to limit their impact.
  • To contribute directly to The United Project's mission of saving lives.
