Smiling Mind

Jane Martino

In 2012 Jane, and her Co-founder, James, wanted to make a positive impact on the mental health and wellbeing of young Australians. They started Smiling Mind to bring mindfulness and resilience programs to everyone, for free, using ahead-of-its-time technology.

After 10 years, accessibility is still at the heart of the vision, with Smiling Mind reaching more than 6.5 million people while embeding itself as the way to proactively support our mental health. Smiling Mind is now used by more than 50 per cent of Australian teachers and is part of daily life for hundreds of thousands of families and businesses across the country.
