WORKSHOPS - The Good Human Factory

Our workshops can be delivered both in school and corporate settings.

The leading cause of death for Australians between the ages of 15 and 44 is suicide. In 2019 alone, 2,000 good humans took their lives. 


The Good Human Factory addresses this issue by teaching and inspiring students to take better care of their mental health. Cooper Chapman, our founder – who also happens to be a professional surfer – is our workshop facilitator. 


Borrowing from his own experience and education, he teaches students the skills and strategies they need, like mindfulness and meditation, in order to manage their anxiety, cope better with stress, and live a positive and balanced life. 


Who delivers this message is almost as important as the message itself. If students can’t relate to a speaker or workshop presenter, they tend to shut down. When they see a fit, youthful professional surfer speak openly about his experience with anxiety and even depression, it can be very powerful and persuasive.


Workshop Outcomes


  • An opportunity for students to become aware of and invested in their own mental health. Working with The Good Human Factory, your school can help break the taboo by encouraging students to speak more openly and comfortably about mental illness. 


  • Our tools and tips can help enhance students’ quality of life, increase their mental strength and resilience, and improve their performance in the classroom, on the sports field, and in their social relationships. 


  • Our Mind Strong workshops can be a catalyst for creating a values-based, culture of kindness at your school.  


  • Our goal is for students to leave the workshop with a new outlook on mental health.The information and inspiration will serve them well not just as students but also as they transition to their careers, university, and into adulthood. 



Workshop Approach


  • Cooper shares the 5 key values he lives by: Gratitude, Mindfulness, Responsibility, Kindness, and Empathy. 


  • As a call to action, he encourages participants to explore the values which resonate most with them.


  • Typically 45 minutes in duration, our Mind Strong workshops are engaging, practical, interactive, and inspirational.


  • Can be delivered in-person or remotely via Zoom.

I really enjoyed this session and have nothing but great things to say. I left the workshop feeling motivated and have the skills to use everyday to improve my mental health. I really liked that the focus points Cooper spoke about can apply to work life balance, particularly workplace stress. And the stories and exercises he ran through really helped pull everything together. Would love to do this session again!
