Who We Are


Peter Annis-Brown


Growing up in the small rural village of Boomi, 100km North west of Moree in Northern NSW, I witnessed first hand what effect the lack of health services and education can have on us all and our communities.


Both my parents died at a young age from lifestyle related disease and this experience was where my desire to help people improve their wellbeing started.


In 2013, I lost an employee to suicide, then a mate in 2016 took his own life. In 2019, I found out my own Grandfather also suicided in 1966. (Unfortunately, no-one spoke of suicide back then).

This lived experience has driven me to educate myself about mental health and the link between physical wellbeing and our mind. I also wanted to be able to reach out to friends, family and colleagues with confidence and competence offering help if they experience mental health and wellbeing issues.


All of this drives my passion for supporting the health and wellbeing of people who live in rural and regional Australia and led to the start-up of ManageHealth where our aim is to help people make it happen with their mental and physical fitness.
