Welcome to
the Mind Games

The Mind Games is a profit-for-purpose company that is focused on workplace mental health. We exist to raise funds for workplace mental health research and create a positive impact in the workplace by giving corporate teams an opportunity to have fun together.

All proceeds raised in The Mind Games 2024 will fund research through the University of Tasmania’s Menzies Institute for Medical Research, supporting mental health research.

Our Vision

Mentally healthy workplaces.

Our Purpose

Contribute to the improvement of workplace mental health through awareness and fundraising by hosting a fun and vibrant corporate teams challenge.

What is the Mind Games?

The Mind Games is a fun, action-packed event to raise money for mental health research. Fifty corporate teams of five people will be put through their paces in 10 fun challenges.

Teams must solve the challenge or complete the task before they can move on to the next one. The team that can outsmart and out-race its competitors will win. The Mind Games Race for Research is not a fitness challenge, but it will exercise minds. It’s a test of general skills, creativity and above all, team work.

WHO IS IT FOR?

The Mind Games Event is being run in Hobart, Tasmania. Any workplace anywhere is Australia can register a team (or three!). Before the challenges kick off, participants and sponsors will gather at a networking event which is a part of your registration fee. This gives an opportunity to network with likeminded businesses and reinforce the messages around mental health and workplace wellness while building an atmosphere of excitement. The Mind Games race day will conclude with the presentation of awards, speeches and acknowledgments. We’ll be promoting all businesses in the lead up and event day’s activities via social media.

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN?

Each year, one in five Australians experience mental illness. Our work environments play an important role in helping people to sustain good mental health and to recover from illness. Mentally unhealthy workplaces cause harm and cost the economy.

The Mind Games will build and promote mentally healthy workplaces while raising money for critical research into the prevention and treatment of mental health problems. Profits raised will once again fund research into workplace mental health at the Tasmanian-based Menzies Institute for Medical Research.
