Mentally Friendly is a digital product studio delivering world class digital products that deliver well-being at scale. We work with organisations in the health, education, education, finance, and government sectors.

Nestled between Surry Hills and Redfern, we offer a relaxed studio space designed for productivity and comfort. And we have an office dog called Murray.

We believe that having fun is a key ingredient to producing great work - especially when project delivery dates are approaching. Everyone's birthday is celebrated with a song and a slice of cake. There is an informal PT club held at lunchtime once a week. And we often get together for BBQs in the park across the road, team dinners, and the odd ten pin bowling tournament.

Every Thursday we hold a "Story Time" where you'll have to opportunity to listen to either a guest speaker or learn about other projects being completed at Mentally Friendly. All while enjoying a schooner of our very own brewed beer and a nibble of cheese. The development team meets each week where we talk about on-going projects, new technology, and we set each other challenges in the form of Code Golf.
