WHY | HOW | WHAT
We want to Change the Meaning of Mental Health so that it's more inspiring, relevant and empowering to everyone.
We encourage people to think
of their Mental Fitness just
like they do their Physical Fitness.
We create products and content that inspire people to be pro-active with Mental Fitness and to share their passion with others.
Resilience: “the capacity of a system to adapt to stress, shock and setbacks and re-build itself when necessary.”
Agenda: “the things that a person or organisation considers to be important and wants to solve or achieve - also, a calendar, planner or diary for taking notes and keeping important priorities.”
How are we Changing the
Meaning of Mental Health?
That's why we believe in Mental Fitness.
Growing up in a family affected by mental ill-health, Hadleigh, like most people at the time misunderstood mental health, how to improve it himself, and how to talk about it effectively with others.
Initially embarrassed to share and open up, he went on a journey of learning and discovery and decided that making a difference in the way people think about mental health was to become his life’s mission.
Hadleigh became fascinated by how we can pro-actively maintain our mental health when we are well, knowing the right strategies for effective early-intervention when we do start to struggle, and finding ways to inspire the people around him to share his passion for positive Mental Health awareness. And the idea of Mental Fitness and the Resilience Agenda was born.Inspired by the tools of positive psychology yet discouraged by its inaccessible language and lack of relevance to many people, Hadleigh decided to start a movement dedicated to positive, pro-active and preventative Mental Health strategies using the metaphor of Mental Fitness. Three years later and with more than 25,000 social media followers and ten-thousand customers later, Resilience Agenda is not only Changing the Meaning of Mental Health, but also changing the way we communicate mental health awareness so that it’s not just about illness, but about what good mental health looks like. Hadleigh has been writing, speaking and teaching about resilience and Mental Fitness for over 7 years. Hadleigh has a background in business, and is a qualified Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Instructor.
