Andrew is the Project Lead for the Business and Community program area, which supports mental health and wellbeing in our workplaces and community through personalised resources and tools tailored to specific needs. This includes our innovative Ahead for Business program focused on small business owners, and our Rural Agribusiness Wellbeing Project supporting small agribusiness owners working in Australia’s agriculture, forestry and fishing industry.
During his time at Everymind, Andrew has contributed to a variety of mental health and suicide prevention initiatives including workplace mental health guidelines, the development of the Minds Together program, and research focused on family and friends caring for a person who has attempted suicide.
Andrew is a geologist by background, but most recently was running MATES in Mining, a suicide prevention charity. Prior to this he worked in the resources sector focused on health and safety, including establishing world-leading workplace mental health research and guidance. Andrew is passionate about making a difference in the communities in which he lives, especially in their mental health and well-being.
