Who Are We

About Us

Voice of Health is a preventative mental health organisation that has developed a platform in the form of a mobile app that provides a safe place where users can talk one-on-one with a trained Active Listener who understands them, utilise well-being tools and develop strategies to self-manage your own mental well-being.​

Voice of Health attends to the need for an effective preventative mental health solution in the Australian and global community. We value the importance of lived experience, empathy, power of perspective and self-managing your mental well-being. A number of other barriers exist that prevent people from seeking support for their mental health. These include availability of healthcare professionals, location, time, financial restrictions, stigma concerns, preference to self-manage, physical challenge or disability.

We are here to eliminate those barriers. Our preventative mental health solution offers greater convenience, accessibility, affordability, scalability and support while never letting go of the human element that cannot be replaced by technology.

What We Teach

Our Methodology

Think back to a time when you were in a conversation and you found yourself wondering if the other person was really listening to you or if your message was getting across the way you wanted it to? How did it make you feel? What would you have changed?

On the other hand, picture a person in your life that you love talking to? Is that person someone you feel like really listens and absorbs your words?

Without even realising it you are naturally going to be drawn towards the people in your life who listen to you. Being a better listener makes you a better friend, loved one, peer, employee and stranger in every way. It helps build patience, fosters trust and resilience, makes those involved feel valued, creates more visibility, and minimises space for misunderstanding and miscommunication.

Active Listening is perhaps one of the greatest secrets to true empathy. At its core, its purpose is to encourage the person talking to put their total focus and attention on themselves and how they feel. It can provide someone struggling with tremendous value, as it allows them to navigate their own difficulties. When someone feels listened to and understood, it lifts an emotional burden.

As an Active listener you empower the speaker to greater self-esteem and self-awareness simply through your willingness to listen them. Too often, instead of providing empathy, we tend to give advice or reassurance and explain our own position and feelings.

Active Listening, on the other hand, requires us to concentrate on the other person’s message, giving them time and space to express themselves fully. Even when you can see the best course of action for a person, it’s far more powerful to help them reach their own solutions. Give them uninterrupted space, letting them know you're there for them and willing to provide them the time they need to slow down, process internally and gain clarity.
