About Be Well Co

Our vision is a world where people have the skills to build
their mental health and grow through life challenges.


Who are we?


Be Well Co Pty Ltd is the first spin-out from the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI), a top global Medical Research Institute. We were set up to translate the research that SAHMRI conduct on wellbeing solutions. We still have direct ties to research institutes like SAHMRI and their collaborators such as Flinders University, with a portion of our proceeds feeding back into vital research into mental health and wellbeing.  


Be Well Co is a spin out of the SAHMRI Wellbeing and Resilience Centre. This centre, set up in 2015, had the aim to build mental health and wellbeing in the Australian community. It did so by 1) providing wellbeing measurement and training to individuals, organisations and the wider community and 2) conducting translational research on the data that was collected in these projects.


While the research component remains within SAHMRI, Be Well Co was set up as an independent entity to take our wellbeing service delivery to a bigger scale. By setting up a dedicated entity for our wellbeing services, we aim to have an even bigger impact in society, by being better positioned to bring our solutions to the rest of Australia and the world.

Our history

Why do we exist?

We exist for a simple purpose: we want people to have the skills to build their mental health and grow through life’s challenges. Our solutions aim to give people agency over their mental health and wellbeing, as there is one thing we have control over in our quest to feel well and be able to deal with life's adversity: the way we think and behave. let's make it easier for people to create positive wellbeing habits, so we can all become better versions of ourselves, as individuals, organisations and the wider community.
