Hugh Van Cuylenberg is the founder and director of The Resilience Project, an organisation that addresses mental illness through delivering emotionally engaging programs to schools, businesses and sports clubs across Australia. The purpose of these programs is to provide people with practical strategies, based on evidence, to build resilience and mental health.

Hugh has been working in education for over 13 years. The Resilience Project was born after Hugh spent a year in northern India volunteering at an underprivileged school in the Himalayas. It was here that he discovered the core components of resilience and, after returning to Melbourne, was inspired to launch The Resilience Project.

1 in 4 adolescents suffer from some form of mental illness. Unfortunately, 65% of those adolescents do not seek help*. Hugh’s mission with The Resilience Project is to prevent mental illness by teaching positive mental health strategies to adolescents and adults. The Resilience Project programs are founded on the benefits of gratitude, empathy and mindfulness.

On October 24th, Hugh will be joining us at The Beatt to explore what resilience is, how we can build our resilience ‘muscle’ and how to protect and strengthen our mental health. Learn how to become more resilient, how to support your children, friends or family to improve mental health and discover evidence based approaches to wellbeing and happiness. Hugh is a brilliant speaker and this next event at The Beatt promises to be an inspiring, interactive, enjoyable and engaging night.

Hugh’s events have been selling out across Australia and tickets are selling fast. Book yours here and join us for this incredible event.
