The leading cause of death for Australians between the ages of 15 and 44 is suicide. In 2019 alone, over 2,000 Good Humans took their lives.
The Good Human Factory addresses this issue by teaching and inspiring participants to take better care of their mental health.
Cooper Chapman, our founder – who also happens to be a professional surfer – is our workshop facilitator.
Our workshops are different to most other mental health organisations. We avoid talking about anxiety, depression, and suicide completely.
We deliver an educational skills-based workshop. We don't want our participants to leave feeling scared of mental illness, went want them to leave empowered to implement healthy daily habits. We want them to leave our workshop knowing that mental health is not mental illness.

"One student pulled me aside to say the workshop was the best part of her day and she felt like a different person after it had finished."
- James Griffin MP, NSW Environment Minister
“I believe Cooper is to be commended for his dedication and focus on improving the discussion and willingness amongst young people to feel comfortable in discussing mental health.”

“I really enjoyed this session and have nothing but great things to say. I left the workshop feeling motivated and have the skills to use everyday to improve my mental health. I really liked that the focus points Cooper spoke about can apply to work life balance, particularly workplace stress. And the stories and exercises he ran through really helped pull everything together. Would love to do this session again!”
