Graeme Cowan

Graeme Cowan is a mental-health and resilience expert, Board Director of R U OK? and co-founder of WeCare. Graeme loves being a mental-health advocate because sharing ideas can lead to conversations, and conversations can lead to action and change. His proudest career achievement was helping to start and grow R U OK? In his earlier career Graeme worked in senior leadership positions with Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, and AT Kearney. In 2000 he went through a five-year episode of depression that his psychiatrist described as the worst he had ever treated. He emerged from this crisis with a different view about how we can increase our resilience, mood, and performance. Graeme is the author of five books, including the internationally acclaimed Back From The Brink, which has a testimonial from the former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, and which has become a best seller in China.
