About Mind Over Matter

Mind Over Matter was created to help remove stigma, increase awareness and education on mental health and mental illness, and help provide strategies to all Australians for how they can manage and improve their mental health and well-being and help the people around them get support.

Mind Over Matter deliberately combines the power of Lived Experience stories with Clinical Mental Health training so that your workplace is covered from both angles. This allows you to both be inspired which helps create change & impact, and educated which allows you to have the confidence you can support those around you.

Mind Over Matter was created by Luke McLean. Luke suffered and battled Depression, Anxiety and Addiction for many years and was trying to fight it all by himself. Ashamed, embarrassed and feeling alone, he continued to struggle as he neglected his Mental Health and didn't know there was help out there. After experiencing a major panic attack and having multiple suicidal thoughts, he begun to seek help through professional therapy and connecting with people with lived experience as well as learning strategies to manage & improve his well-being.

Through his journey, Luke realised the importance of prioritising mental health and well-being strategies and removing the stigma associated with mental health and mental illness and begun work as an advocate.
