The HumanEx Story

“We have decades of combined lived experience and we’ve walked the path with many others around us who we love and respect. We’ve carried the weight of mental ill health and stigma on our own backs and for others who we care about. Some of the journeys have been devastating, others have been inspiring, all of them have granted us insight, compassion and determination”. 

Lindsey and Kate met and worked collaboratively across different business structures in the years prior to Covid-19. During the first wave of the pandemic they saw first-hand how devastating poor mental health could be for both employees and organisations, especially in uncertain and volatile conditions.

For their own mental health, and those around them, Kate and Lindsey both changed their professional trajectory and set up businesses to address what they believed was a radical need for ill mental health prevention and early intervention initiatives in Aotearoa.

After reconnecting in the first ‘out of lockdown’ period, Lindsey and Kate shared their ambitions for achieving positive and impactful change. They focussed on mutual values and purpose, and evaluated a collective impact model that quickly guided the easy alignment of business initiatives.
