Lessons in Happiness – From the Third World

Jun 18 2018

In my team, I have some exciting people. Peter Jensen and I have worked together for over 10 years and recently have developed an excellent program around Mental Wellbeing – “It’s all about me. It’s all about us”

Much of the program is built on a book Pete has written, “Lessons in Happiness – From the Third World”. It’s a powerful reflection from his childhood experiences living in a South African village and coming to the land of ‘milk and honey’ – Australia.

Depression, anxiety or stress

Did you know that the cost of mental ill-health in Australia is around 4 per cent of GDP or about $4,000 from every taxpayer? It costs the nation more than $60 billion.

Everybody seems to know somebody who has been impacted by depression, anxiety or stress. Have you ever felt helpless, not known what to do next or overwhelmed by self-help programs that seem like too much hard work?

Healthy and productive workplaces 

As Pete and myself are passionate about building engaged, healthy and productive workplaces we have been overwhelmed with the feedback from this program.
