Improving Australia’s mental health by delivering expert-led, evidence-based accredited education and training.

Birchtree Education

We help businesses, community and sporting organisations, education providers, clinicians and allied health professionals to better manage their organisation’s mental health.

We specialise in supporting those who work with or have experienced complex trauma or neglect, which often underlies many mental health challenges. Our bespoke, co-designed educational programs are grounded in the latest neuroscience research, providing team members with the tools to develop greater self-awareness and enable them to provide more effective support to those in their care.


In our community, there is a growing awareness of the importance of mental health and people are increasingly open to starting conversations about it. A critical first step. But then what?

Many Australians lack the practical skills and tools to remedy, protect and grow their own mental health, as this ‘capability’ has not been taught and reinforced through consistent education. Likewise, many of us are unsure how to identify and assist those in our community who may be struggling.

Workplaces face additional risks, as Australia’s model Work Health & Safety (WHS) legislation mandates the provision of both a physically safe and psychologically safe workplace. Yet stress-related legal claims have increased 50% over the past 5 years, costing the Australian community $70 billion per year. In turn, fuelling staff turnover, absenteeism and presenteeism.


We believe practical mental health education should be accessible to all.


With four generations now in the workplace, and 40% of young Australians (aged 16-24) experiencing a mental health episode annually – how prepared is your organisation to care for and lead these different generations?

We also support teams working in complex environments and frontline staff regularly experiencing stressful interactions with the public.


We support-the-supporters by partnering with community organisations and their teams.

Our Birchtree Education x Modern People partnership bridges modern leadership development and mental health capability, equipping leaders with the soft skills they need in an increasingly complex, post-COVID workplace – with far greater demands.

Knowing how to value and lead an engaged team – especially against a backdrop of rising generalized anxiety in the community and the growing quest for meaningful work in purpose-led organisations – demands new skills. It calls for greater flexibility, autonomy, and care in where and how work is performed.
