We live in a world where there is an epidemic of low self-worth.
This can be caused by a myriad of issues such as childhood trauma, negative environments at school and work, cyberbullying, and many other relationship and situational issues as we get older.
Low self-worth adversely affects the way you feel about yourself, your mental and emotional wellbeing, and it impacts the quality of experiences you have in your life.
Why did we start the foundation?
Apart from what it is we do, this is probably the most common question we are asked.
Sadly, and despite the affluence of our society in Australia, low self-worth affects most of us at some point in our lives.
Unchecked, low self-worth may lead to mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, and sadly, even more tragic results. The causes of low self-worth are varied but can frequently be traced back to traumatic life events, or dysfunctional early years.
A healthy society minimises the stress on social and community services. It is our perspective that with healthy self-worth, an individual is more likely to have better coping skills, greater resilience and the ability to maintain long-term positive mental health.
We want to support people on this journey.
We want people to be aware of the importance of healthy self-worth and so we’ve developed the tools and resources to help any person, whether they be young or old, to take action and safeguard their sense of self.
To help individuals, families, communities and workplaces recognise the importance of self-worth, to encourage preventative mental health intervention, and to offer support to the community through awareness campaigns, resources and public discussions.
That a healthy wellbeing and positive mental health can be achieved by any person of any age and from any background.
Who we are.
Led by our Founder and CEO Elizabeth Venzin, we are small but passionate group of industry leaders who donate our time and expertise with unrelenting dedication to promoting the importance of positive mental health.
