About Us

CoLiberate is a Wellington based organisation on this mission to enable all NZer’s to thrive! We are creating a wellness revolution, by eliminating the stigma around mental illness and enabling everyday New Zealander’s to value their mental and emotional health just as much as they do their physical fitness.

Co-founders Bop, Sarah and Jody, are alumni’s of accelerator programme, Live the Dream which helped launch CoLiberate’s first Mental Health gym. In the last two years, CoLiberate has expanded rapidly to include wellbeing culture training for organisations, consent education workshops and we are now the lead providers of NZ/Aotearoa Mental Health First Aid Certificate.



The team had their first publicity breakthrough in the form of a Ted Talk, at Tedx Wellington in 2017. Since then they have been named by WREDA as one of the top five influencers in Wellington working in health science. They were announced finalists for NZ young innovators of the year, and national innovation in health and science at the NZ Innovation Awards in 2017. 

CoLiberate’s core values are:


These are the foundations on which we stand and hold ourselves to.
