Why support the Human Connection Project Foundation?
Our vision is to help people become more resilient and empathetic individuals with stronger connections to their community by empowering people to engage, create and lead through human connection.
Nearly 800,000 people globally died due to suicide last year and an estimated 10-25 attempts for every death (WHO, 2019), so to help we are taking a proactive approach to our mental health and wellness through human connection.
By providing opportunities for human connection we aim to reduce the feeling of isolation and rates of depression and suicide in our communities.
We are currently looking for people to volunteer and support us in the following areas:
- Content - blogs, social media, video support
- Grant and Proposal writing
- Volunteer Management
- Social Media Community Engagement
As a volunteer contributor, you will be able to assist approx 2-4 hours per week. If you are looking for an Internship please contact us to discuss your course requirements.

Sponsor an initiative
By becoming a corporate or community sponsor, you will be supporting the delivery of peer-to-peer human connection initiatives, programs and events. The reason our programs make a positive impact on the mental health and wellbeing of communities is they are run or delivered by people from the community - sharing their experiences to create an inclusive space for people to simply connect with each other.
Walk & Talk
Our Walk & Talk events will be relaunching in September 2020 after a hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Contact our Partnerships Manager for a Sponsorship pack if you are interesting in becoming a foundation or supporting sponsor.
The Global Movement
Aligning with World Mental Health Day and Qld Mental Health Week, the Global Movement encourages people to find a buddy and get out and move in the fight against mental illness and suicide.

We sit down with mental health experts and people from our community to share stories and strategies for improving human connection in our everyday lives.
