The Good Human Factory was founded by Ex Pro Surfer Cooper Chapman in 2020 after seeing his sister lose multiple friends to suicide in her last year of high school. Cooper’s goal is to connect people with simple tools to improve their wellbeing and thrive in life.

We inspire people to think differently about mental health and wellbeing through workshops, podcasts, merch and our community.

Mental health is not mental illness and we all need to become aware of – and take care of – our own mental health.

We teach science-backed skills such as mindfulness, gratitude, kindness, empathy, and taking responsibility.

Our workshops have reached over 35,000 students and 10,000 corporate participants since 2020.



A professional surfer for more than 10 years, Cooper grew up in Narrabeen in New South Wales, Australia. Cooper’s interest in mental health was prompted by his father’s bout with depression and the suicide of two family friends. Meditating on a regular basis and practicing mindfulness helps Cooper manage his anxiety and perform at a high level, whether he’s competing in a contest or giving a speech.

With a low-key, caring manner that connects with all audiences, Cooper Chapman has trained thousands of Australian students, teachers, atheletes, and corporates to increase their mental strength and resilience.
