WHY HUMAN CONNECTION PROJECT
A Distinct Purpose
The Human Connection Project is a multi-layered social enterprise working within the community to create a more connected, empathetic and resilient social standing to improve the current state of mental health in Australia.
We do this through educational workshops in both school and corporate settings. Community events designed to bring a number of different communities and demographics together. We also move through a number of other avenues and channels including our clothing line, How Good's Living.
Our vision is to not only build more resilient and empathetic individuals but stronger connections to their community as well.
The act of connecting as human beings has diminished over the years due to the influx of incredibly busy lifestyles, and greater time constraints. From this human disconnection, we have seen an incredibly alarming increase in mental illness, in particular, the issue of suicide.
What we believe, is that a large percentage of those suffering from mental illness are suffering from a degree of 'environmental depression'; thus meaning their environment is playing an enormous role in their mental state.
Just as bees have evolved to need a hive, humans have evolved to need a tribe. Yet, within today's society, these 'tribes' are virtually non-existent. As society has become busier and more digitally connected than ever, we have become the most socially disconnected generation in human history. As a society, we have learnt to prioritise possessions and titles over experiences and connections.
"I alone cannot change the world,
but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”
