Our Story


Our Ambassadors

ONE IN FIVE acknowledges and values the enormous contribution our Ambassadors make to our ongoing funding of medical research to help find a cure for mental illness.

We thank our Ambassadors for the long-term commitment they and their companies have made in sharing our goal of turning one in five into none in five. We also thank our Ambassadors for their understanding of the challenges faced by sufferers of mental illness and their willingness to continue to work with us.

Meet our Ambassador
Stephen Curry

Stephen Curry has been a regular face on Australian television screens for decades on shows such as Frontline, The Secret Life of Us, Cloudstreet and Redfern Now. He is well known for this role in the hit Australian film The Castle, as well as his portrayal of Graham Kennedy in The King.

Stephen is an AFI award winner, Silver Logie award winner, Marcellin College year seven spelling champion 1988 and in 2008 he appeared on ‘Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?’. Whilst he proved that there’s a red-hot chance he isn’t even smarter than a first grader, his efforts contributed $50,000 to the ONE IN FIVE cause! He still claims to this day that ONE IN FIVE founding member Tim Wardlaw being in the audience put him off his game. We don’t buy it for a second.

Stephen’s proud association with ONE IN FIVE goes back to the very early days of our existence and he promises that if he’s ever invited back on a game show he’ll (quote-unquote) ‘proudly donate all my winnings to the cause, but I only pray for ONE IN FIVE'S sake it’s not another general knowledge quiz.’

‘If it is’ he adds, ‘we’re all stuffed.’
