Gus
Worland

Media Identity & Mental Fitness Campaigner, Media Personality, NSW State Finalist for Australian of the Year 2024

Profile

Much loved Australian media identity, Gus Worland is a passionate advocate for building the mental fitness of Australians.

GUS WANTS ALL AUSTRALIANS TO HAVE THEIR GOTCHA4LIFE MATE.

Gus founded Gotcha4Life in 2017, following the success of the ABC series Man Up and losing a very close friend and life mentor to suicide, as he realised he had the ability and networks to make a real difference.

Gus wants to get to the bottom of the suicide crisis, effect real social change and hopefully save lives. He wants to raise awareness about the multifaceted health benefits associated with having a close mate, and reduce the alarming statistics on suicide across Australia and world. Gus aims to empower men and women with positive strategies to seek support and social connectedness.

In recognition for his service to building mental fitness, Gus was a state finalist for the Australian of the Year in 2023.

Feedback
Gus’ recent presentation at the Golf Club's 'Father, Sons and Friends Night' drew the highest appreciation. Many members attending have since indicated to me how much they gleaned from it, how it set up a long overdue conversation with their sons (about mental health but also about subject matters between father and son that are traditionally swept under the carpet) and how encouraging it is that RSGC is playing a role (albeit a small one) in surfacing these issues and what Gotcha4life is doing. In short, you were superb; both your set-piece and your easy style in handling the Q&A. Royal Sydney Golf Club

The presentation was brilliant, the guys were continually talking about it all afternoon. Not only about the presentation, but the take home message which was front of mind and thought provoking and really struck a nerve.

Wow. Gus' presentation really hit the mark for many of our delegates. We are incredibly grateful for your presentation at the 2023 International Mental Health Conference and your willingness to be involved. The delegates were grateful and appreciated you enhancing their education experience.

Gus was the highlight of our three-day Retail Managers Conference and he was brilliant! His genuine warmth and natural ability to own the room and really connect with the audience was inspiring, educational and real.
