About Blooming Minds
Blooming Minds partners with organisations and communities to develop positive mental health cultures.
From short mental health courses to ongoing related programs, individual consulting or mental health resources for your workplace; Blooming Minds delivers.
Blooming Minds works with organisations and communities to enhance positive mental health cultures to assist employees to proactively support their mental health as well as to appropriately recognise and respond to mental health issues in themselves, their colleagues, clients, families and communities.
To develop mental health literacy in workplaces, individuals and groups in Western Australia and beyond so that the stigma of mental illness is reduced, people can respond in mental health crisis and people are engaging in strategies to proactively enhance their mental wellbeing.
Excellence: to provide a professional, quality service.
Significance: to positively significantly impact the people and organisations that we engage with.
Integrity: to be our word all times every time.
At Blooming Minds we are committed to excellence and our team of dedicated learning and development and mental health professionals sets us apart. We bring life and professional experience to positively engage your team in developing their mental health literacy, an area that is often shrouded in stigma and misunderstanding. We take pride in providing high-standards of professionalism and excellence, which has earnt us a strong reputation. With over 15 years in workplace mental health, our experts have successfully worked with many organisations and hundreds of participants to develop greater awareness of mental health and its impacts in the workplace. We currently deliver workplace mental health training in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and regional WA and are expanding internationally.
All of our programs are customised to meet the needs of your organisation. We take the time to learn about your staffs needs, your organisations policies and procedures and the support structures that you already have in place. We then design our programs to complement and integrate with these, and utilise the opportunity to reinforce these to your staff through all of our work. Our programs are supported by pre-course online surveys and post course reports to measure the impact the training has had for your staff and to help you to measure your return on investment.
Blooming Minds products and programs are based on international best practice research and experience. We ensure that all of our materials are current and relevant to your needs. Participants in our programs receive comprehensive resources to use after the program, including access to our online membership site with ongoing access to additional articles, webinars and demonstrations videos.
Our online membership site also provides your staff to ongoing access to our team for email and telephone consults to assist with implementing information and strategies learnt in our programs. Partnering with Blooming Minds means buying behavioural change programs for your organisation – not just a training session.

Hello, I’m Tasha Broomhall, the Director and lead facilitator for Blooming Minds Mental Health and Wellbeing which has partnered with organisations and communities to develop cultures of positive mental health and wellbeing for the past 10 years.
After spending the beginning part of my career working individually with employees living with mental illness to manage its impacts in the workplace, I recognised a gap in manager understanding of mental illness and their legal obligations and responsibilities to employee mental health.
That’s why I developed Blooming Minds – to not only inform leaders about their roles and responsibilities towards employee mental health, but to provide tools and supports that give practical steps for responding to mental health issues in their employees, themselves and their colleagues.
I am a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) and Certified Expert Presenter (CEP), hold a Principal Master Trainer status from the MHFA Australia program and am currently completing a Masters of Sc Psychology. I’ve combined my passion for mental health with my love of writing and have authored Bloom! Mental health and Wellbeing and Bloom! at Work, A mental health guide for leaders. Based in Perth, I travel throughout Western Australia, Australia and internationally, delivering workplace mental health training for leaders.
Mental health is a serious topic but with almost half of us experiencing mental illness in our lifetime, it is a subject that we need to talk openly about in our homes, workplaces and communities. I draw from my background in psychology, disability, psycho-social rehabilitation and business in my seminars to talk about a serious topic in a relatable and sometimes humorous way that connects with my audiences.
If you would like an example of my presentation style or just want to learn more about mental health, take a look at a video here.

I manage content, research and development for Blooming Minds. I’m a teacher by trade and my passion is accessible education for life. I’m a learning and teaching nerd (I seriously get a kick out of seeing people get that aha moment when they understand a hard concept). Writing content and materials to educate our community about mental health and wellness combines my loves of education and equality with my passion for community driven solutions to societies challenges.
Like many chalkies, I have utilised my teaching and learning skills in a bunch of different ways from starting my career teaching year 7 in a remote Indigenous community, co-ordinating a training program in the aged care industry, teaching in a bi-lingual Kindergarten in China, through to managing a health promotion road safety team based in Perth.
Being the Deputy Editor of Blooming Minds eMagazine, I’ve had the privilege of getting to know some of the wonderful change-makers in this space who inspire me with their passion and commitment to social change including our own team at Blooming Minds.
