About Mentally Wellthy

How We Can Help You Help Others

Mentally Wellthy partners with organisations to improve employee wellbeing, safety and performance.

It’s time to address the elephant in the room – mental health problems are real and they will impact every organisation to some extent.

65% of people with a common mental illness don’t seek treatment but help seeking increases with encouragement from those around them. The right support can fast track an employee’s return to thriving and strong performance at work.

Our clients value their staff. They recognise that strong performance is critical but that it cannot come at the expense of wellbeing. We help them to achieve both. We work with businesses large and small.

Working with Mentally Wellthy will help you to develop a culture where your people can show up at work as their best selves and contribute to your business. You will be equipping your team to thrive at work and to help their colleagues to thrive.

Donna Thistlethwaite

Chief Wellth Creator

Founder,Donna Thistlethwaite, is passionate about creating mentally healthy workplaces because she personally understands the impact of untreated mental health problems on an individual and on the workplace.

In 2012, Donna was a competent and well-regarded human resources professional with a loving family and many friends. No-one could have predicted the mental health crisis that she experienced in response to a workplace challenge. Unfortunately, she didn’t reach out for help and those around her were not prepared or equipped for the possibility that she had become suicidal.

Donna’s quest to help people to THRIVE so that they can lessen the likelihood of experiencing a mental health problem drove her to start speaking about her experience and to ultimately establish Mentally Wellthy.

Donna is an accredited Principal Master Mental Health First Aid Instructor, Resilience at Work Facilitator and holds a number of tertiary qualifications including a Bachelor of Business (Human Resource Management).
