SuperFriend is a national mental health organisation focused on creating positive, healthy and safe working environments where every employee can be well and thrive. Our goal is to reduce the incidence of suicide and impact of mental illness on individuals and their workplaces.
We are the only mental health organisation that partners with ‘all profit to member’ superannuation funds and group life insurers to gain knowledge of the industry’s unique needs and respond with tailored solutions. Through these collaborative relationships, SuperFriend has the potential to embed mental health and wellbeing best practices into 750,000 workplaces and impact more than half of Australia’s workforce through our suite of programs and resources.
The SuperFriend story began in 2007 when insurers and superannuation funds came together through the Industry Funds Forum to coordinate an approach to improving the mental health of their members so they could enjoy a long, positive and financially secure retirement. Since then, the Foundation has made a big impact – see the achievements we put together for our 10th anniversary here.
