I do not receive a fee for any recommendation I make, and I am not affiliated with any of the organisations I mention except Wellbeing Australia and have recently been consulting to the Black Dog Institute regarding the HeadStrong program.
I include them because I respect their work, and you may (or may not) benefit from taking a look at them.
Some of those recommended below are positive psychology specialists, others are not, but their work contains aspects of positive psychology – sometimes without them even knowing!
This is by no means a definitive or exhaustive list, it’s actually just off the top of my head and in no particular order. Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments section below and I’ll try to keep adding to this page.
I hope you find it useful.

And of course…
Much of the work I do with schools and organisations is focused on embedding concepts of engagement, wellbeing and positive psychology.
Have a look at some of the ways I could work with you.
