Director, Rise Foundation Australia
In 2013, after losing friends to suicide and with years of trying to figure out how to better manage his personal battle with bipolar, Ben decided it was time for change in his community. Every day since then, Ben has developed his networks and professional training skills to prevent suicide and encourage mental wellbeing. He is a qualified Mental Health First Aid and Mental Health Response trainer and travels around the country, and the world, teaching and up skilling businesses, communities and individuals in suicide prevention, wellbeing and health. To date, Ben has trained people people from across the whole spectrum of our society. In addition to professional training, Ben has raised millions of dollars and continues to raise invaluable awareness through events benefiting suicide prevention in Australia, earning himself an Australia Day Award in the process. Due to Bens real, raw, honest and practical delivery, he has been a sought after speaker in current years, speaking at numerous corporate events and multiple conferences across the world including the United States National conference on behavioural health and more recently in 2019 a guest speaker at the International Bi Polar Foundation international conference.
