Chief Executive Officer, Mind Blank

Let's talk - workplace mental health

Ally Kelly is the Chief Executive Officer & Founder of Mind Blank Ltd. A charity aimed to reduce the risk of suicide through interactive workshops in schools, workplaces, and communities. She has led the organisation through ten years of service.

In 2017 Ally’s efforts were recognised winning the NSW State Mental Health Matters Award. In 2019, she was presented with the Mental Health Services Award for Mental Illness Prevention at the British Convention & Exhibition Centre which received international recognition.

Ally is on a mission to lead an empowered journey by highlighting her experiences and sharing her story. She will take you on a creative adventure sharing insight regarding how she was able to awaken her inner voice.

As a founder of a small bespoke community charity, Ally has determined Australia lacks the body research to demonstrate evidence in long-term benefits of arts and health programs. Through research and program evaluation she aspires to support community arts programs and grassroots initiatives towards a sustainable impact for Australia.
