The voice of lived expertise to help support.
The Inner Ninja Foundation is a charity which harnesses the voice of lived expertise to help support people in achieving mental wellness. We believe mental wellness, suicide prevention and education go hand in hand in making our communities safe and inclusive of people with brain health issues and mental illnesses.
Stefani Caminiti is the founder and CEO of The Inner Ninja Foundation. Stefani is an avid mental wellness advocate and international speaker. Stefani has completed a bachelors degree in psychology and counselling and will begin a masters degree in suicidology. Stefani volunteered and worked within in the mental health sector for the past 11 years for various organisations. Currently Stefani is an ambassador for Lifeline WA, a speaker for SANE Australia, on the advisory committee for Roses in the Ocean primary health network Perth, a volunteer for CYPRESS, a member of the CQNR collective and a member of the lived experience network with Suicide Prevention Australia.
Through sharing her lived experience of surviving a suicide attempt, living with depression, generalised anxiety disorder and OCD for most of her life and how she now manages it. Stefani encourages others to seek help and deliver the message of hope. Stefani shares her experiences through the lens of being a new mother, a CEO, an advocate for those whose voices haven't been heard and a suicide survivor. Stefani's story has lead her to travel the globe and complete speaking tours in the USA.
Stefani believes we all have an inner ninja within us and through self awareness, self acceptance and kindness we can allow our inner ninja to grow. Through education and sharing lived experiences of survival, we can create a contagion of hope and change the culture which surrounds mental illnesses.
