Meet Our Leadership Team
Rahul Seth CA - Founder
Rahul Seth is a Chartered Accountant who now works in the mental health sector. Rahul's initial career path was in the field of accounting, a natural talent he discovered he had in his high school days. He worked in auditing, taxation & not-for-profit commercial accounting and obtained his Chartered Accountant qualification, but he didn't have a strong passion for this career path.
After discovering his passion for promoting positive mental health and recovery through the establishment of this group, Rahul went on to study a Certificate IV in Mental Health and now works in the mental health sector.
Outside of the career realm, Rahul is a passionate amateur photographer, a former long-standing volunteer with TEDxPerth, a fanatic of Formula 1 racing & is known to enjoy reading non-fiction books and swimming at the beach.
Rahul believes the key to mental health recovery & living a happy life is developing various social connections across many forms, such as joining social groups & volunteering in the community & he aims to champion the message of inclusion and connection through activities he undertakes.
