"Mental ill health is one of the world’s greatest challenges — solving mental health is the Thrive Foundation’s moon-shot project."

Who we are

An accelerator foundation with the intention of solving global mental health.


Complex systems like mental health can be solved in smaller testbed nations. Thrive is our moonshot project.


So far we have impacted on 3000 people and seeded 10 projects through our events, startups and coaching.


We rely on charitable funding to accelerate our impact projects, scientific underpinnings, people and events.

The Thrive Foundation is a community movement looking to solve one of the world’s biggest and most complex challenges: mental health.

We intend to develop an Accelerator blueprint for any country to solve mental health by demonstrating that it is possible, starting in a self-governing island nation.

This blueprint will be open sourced and used to accelerate radical improvements in global mental health.

By concentrating global intention on one small community, and bringing together world disruptors, innovators and experts, we will accelerate discoveries to solve mental illness and addictive disorders.


It always seems impossible until it is done.Nelson Mandela
