Who we are

“The first of it’s kind! A South African wellness campaign that focuses on mental health and happiness.”

Liane McGowan

Founder & Owner

Liane McGowan obtained her degree in Psychology through UNISA in 2012. Liane has worked as an operations manager with Currin’t Events for over 12 years, working directly with medium and large corporates in South Africa. During these years, Liane identified a need for a mental wellbeing focus and began researching the topic of happiness within the corporate space.

Liane conducted her honours research report in 2010 on the prerequisites for successful retirement for adults over the age of 60; where she found that happiness in retirement was linked to happiness in the workplace.

With teenagers of her own, Liane has further developed the campaigns to target Bullying, Suicide and Happiness for High School children. Allowing kids to talk openly, Liane discusses the issues around these topics with High School kids to help eliminate the increase of bullying and suicide rates we’re seeing in South Africa.

Happy Monday has also developed a blog in which teens can share and talk and use the platform to seek advice in a judgement free environment monitored by Liane and her team.
