Dane Christison Founder/CEO

Survive to Thrive Nation was founded by former infantry soldier, Iraq and East Timor veteran Dane Christison. In 2009, Post-service and after experiencing two combat tours, Dane felt the mental health support system exacerbated stress. Untimely and bureaucratic stressors to get appropriate support, a lack of effective innovation, programs that did not provide the lived-experience facilitators that felt relatable, and furthermore; nor the holistic answers for tangible results he needed led Dane to go on a personal development journey.

This journey would eventually have him find answers that were not being provided clinically so he developed revolutionary coaching strategies which lead him to “jump back in the hole with veterans to show them the way out.” By 2015, Dane became an evaluated personal development coach and pioneer of online innovative mental health support. Today, Survive to Thrive Nation is a multi award-winning organisation that has proven to save and change thousands of lives. In the same year Dane created the worlds-first online, (and now) evidence-based, mental health and transitioning success program for current and former service personnel. The program additionally provides a phone app for routine to achieve positivity and strength, 24hr access to an online peer support community, and additional Peer Mentors and Coaches (veterans coaching veterans).

The program has been successfully tested in three separate clinical evaluations two of which were commissioned by the federal government proving positive results in preventing mental health conditions, and significantly improving recovery from PTSD, anxiety, depression, and anger whilst also improving happiness. To date our veteran support program has had over 7000 completions and zero reported suicides.

Today, Survive to Thrive Nation provides both clinical care and lived-experience services and multiple programs for the general-public and workforce with a large array of industries from mining, oil and gas, to legal and more with our Employment Assistance Programs, Induction and Intervention Online Mental Health Programs, Certified Peer Mentor training, Psychosocial Hazard Support, Fast-Access Psychology Treatment and more.
