How are you today?

It’s not a question we often ask ourselves

Did you know:

In Australia,

  • 1 million adult Australians have depression
  • Over 2 million people have anxiety
  • 45% of people will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime
  • There are 3000 Australians who take their life each year

Globally

  • More than 300 million people of all ages suffer from depression
  • Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide

(statistics above are from Beyond Blue Australia and World Health Organisation’s websites)

Strive and Thrive is aiming to change these statistics.

Strive and Thrive Values

OUR MISSION:

To create awareness around the importance of being healthy mentally, as well as physically, and to inspire, guide and connect others who aim to Strive and Thrive for a better life.

 

OUR VISION

To inspire and empower others to Strive and Thrive for a positive life, and to remind each other to be mindful of those around us. Mental health is not a tangible illness, so awareness is key to providing support.

Strive and Thrive is a movement that advocates practices of positive living. Is is the brainchild of Norita Omar who suffered a traumatic brain injury in 2006 that led her to living with anxiety, depression and even suicide. Luckily, she lives to tell her story. Years after Norita’s recovery, one of her friend decided to take her life in 2015. Norita then began the journey of Strive and Thrive to raise awareness of the hardships that people who suffer anxiety and depression go through. She has presented at various events to create awareness for mental health and to inspire others to be mindful of those who are facing life’s challenges.

Born in Singapore, Norita has worked and lived across 3 continents. She currently resides in Australia and has over 15 years of experience with big brands in the hospitality and entertainment industry and holds a BA in Tourism, Hospitality and Business Management (which she endeavoured to complete after her brain injury).

Now, Strive and Thrive exists as a social platform, with both online resources and workshops, to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues like stress, anxiety and depression. It aims to build a community where people are impacted with positive life messages. Strive and Thrive provides support, services and products so that people can equip themselves with tools, practices and the right mindset to live a much more positive life.

If like most of us, you’re trying to strike a healthy balance between work, family, and leisure time, you’ll know how overwhelming it all can be. Working collaboratively with health practitioners, mindset industry experts, holistic living services and more, Strive and Thrive focuses on achieving the following core objectives:

– Gain a better understanding of stress, anxiety and depression

– Discover how stress and anxiety can affect you and how it can be managed

– Visualise a more positive future with a positive mindset

– Live joyously in a supportive, kinder and caring society
