Why we exist
Creating mindful generations
We want to live in a world where everyone has the skills and ability to manage life's challenges and live to their full potential. This starts with a healthy mind because this underpins our ability to live, learn and work in an increasingly complex, digitally connected and fast-paced world.
The mental health statistics speak for themselves. Something needs to change.
Our vision is to help every mind thrive and that's why we believe that taking a pre-emptive approach to support mental health is essential and it needs to be accessible to all.
The work we do focusses on where we can make the biggest positive impact – in schools, in workplaces and in communities so no matter where you live or what your life situation is, you can access our programs and tools.
Join us to help make this change.
Smiling Mind is a 100% not-for-profit that's changing the world by helping every mind to thrive.
We're helping people in schools, workplaces, communities and in the home.
We deliver the benefits of mindfulness and meditation to both children and adults via a free app, face-to-face workshops and resources that can be used by both teachers and employers.
Here's how we're making a difference
We're the leader in pre-emptive mindfulness based programs and our beginning started with two passionate Australians.
Back in 2012, our Melbourne co-founders, Jane Martino and James Tutton, sat down to explore a mutual passion for mindfulness and meditation and a need to teach their own children these skills, in a practical and modern way. They also wanted to create a tool that would make meditation free and accessible to everyone. They sought out the best psychologists and mindfulness experts and got to work developing the Smiling Mind app.
Smiling Mind and our state-of-the-art technology platform has since become the trusted digital tool for individuals, workplaces and the classroom with over 3.5 million app downloads and over 55,000 educators now using our resources.
We are excited to introduce you to our team.
We come from a variety of backgrounds, with a range of skills and experiences, sharing a common passion and purpose.
