If we want to affect change - we must seek to understand first and foremost.

We must come into meaningful, authentic relationships with ourselves and with others.

’No Change Without Understanding’™ began with our Indigenous programs connecting Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to each other, Culture, Country, history and traditional practices. It has since evolved to be recognised by Life Again as the Foundation’s guiding principle when delivering all preventative mental health initiatives.

We’re calling on you to help share our message by purchasing a beanie, posting socially to your broader community about the campaign and starting a conversation with your community.

Life Again delivers sustained positive mental health outcomes to organisations, individuals (men and women) and communities.
We do this through meaningful prevention-focused programs that recognise cross-cultural connection and Aboriginal knowledge as a foundation for positive mental health.

Traditional Owner and artist Naomi (Rose) Litster created a stunning design which she says depicts
‘‘Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people walking together towards a common goal.’’

It is our belief there will be No Change Without Understanding.

This artwork is unique to the ‘No Change Without Understanding’™ beanie project and you can be proud knowing you are not only wearing a unique design, but supporting the community and giving back. This project is part of our broader strategy to achieve our vision of ‘A mentally healthy and Culturally thriving Australia.’

ABOUT THE ARTIST AND THE DESIGN

“Black and red dots in the centre representing the gathering of people coming together. The white and yellow dots representing the long journey towards healing. The black and white feet representing Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people walking together towards a common goal.
I hope you like it”

Our message is a fairly simple one...

We want to create a mentally healthy &culturally thriving Australia.

Founded in 2012, Life Again has traditionally supported men through midlife mental health challenges.

The Foundation has now evolved to deliver sustained positive mental health outcomes to organisations, individuals (men and women) and communities through meaningful prevention-focussed positive mental health programs.

Commercial programs include workplace mental health, cultural education/immersion complimented by meaningful giving back opportunities.

Profits generated from commercial activities are principally used to fund Indigenous-led prevention-focused mental health initiatives and programs within Aboriginal communities.

It has been identified that positive emotion is a key outcome of creating psychologically safe workplaces, cross-Cultural engagement and Cultural awareness for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians – through our work we bring our vision of a “a mentally healthy and Culturally thriving Australia” to life.
