This Is A Conversation Starter

The TIACS Foundation is a free text, chat and call-back service connecting individuals seeking counselling services with qualified professionals.

TIACS foundation was created by Ed Ross and Daniel Allen, two social entrepreneurs from Brisbane, Australia. After Dan lost a close mate to suicide in late 2015, it became obvious that there was a significant lack of understanding around mental health, particularly among young men. 

After starting TradeMutt, the social enterprise workwear company, in 2018, Dan and Ed knew that they wanted to further their work by driving a cultural shift around the mental health conversation to providing a solution for anyone seeking help.

National Operations Network is proud to support this TIACS foundation and all the inroads they make towards helping people with mental health illnesses. 

Founder and Director of National Operations Network Kris Lewin stated that this is important to create a workplace culture that recognises mental health issues “This is a step forward in creating mental health awareness within National Operations Network and the workplace in general. The whole team have been fantastic and jumped on board in supporting the culture shift, including the whole workplace wearing TradeMutt shirts every Friday so that you can miss us!”

National Operations Network made its first donation back in May 2020 & continues to support such a great cause in raising much-needed awareness and services for mental health illness.
