Our Approach

Here at the Australasian Sustainable Wellness Academy (ASWA), we know that when individuals thrive, teams and organisations are more likely to thrive.

Our whole-person, whole-organisation approach to mental health and wellbeing is a framework that is aligned with ISO 45003 International Standards and WHS obligations. To be sustainable, wellness needs to be led from an inside-out approach. If it’s not sustainable, it’s not successful. Achieving sustainable results requires relevant skills, powerful strategies and experienced guidance and support during the development and implementation phases.

Both employers and employees benefit from our award-winning approach to wellness. Employees learn how to live their best life and deal with day-to-day challenges to achieve whole life balance, using an evidence-based framework based on proven principles of wellbeing and leadership.

Employers benefit from having empowered employees, with managers and leaders enabled to cultivate a healthy culture from within the organisation – for enhanced engagement, cohesion, wellbeing, performance and sustainability.


Our Mission

Wellness should be within everyone’s reach – that’s our philosophy.

Our vision is that organisations CAN and MUST be supportive environments for individuals to work well and thrive.

What we do:      Enable people to adapt, grow and thrive. 

Why we do it:   We love, live and work wellness. And…everyone deserves to have the capacity and capability to thrive with safety, health and wellbeing. 

How we do it:    Our whole-person, whole-organisation approach provides the evidence-based competency framework, strategies, tools and customised support for individuals and organisations to thrive.
