Time for a paradigm change
At Loffty, we’re passionate about uplifting Australians and creating a world where people are empowered to understand, discuss and transform mental health and wellbeing.
We’ve set a Loffty goal of measurably uplifting 10 million people using our gold standard mental health assessment! Our appalling Australian suicide rates won’t change if we do more of the same. But with our paradigm changing approach to mental health assessment and working together with people, practitioners and workplaces, there’s no reason we can’t achieve our Loffty goal.
