Celebrating publicans who support their community, providing mental health solutions for those who frequent Great Aussie Pubs.

Are you a publican who is inclusive of the community and keen to promote mental health awareness, and more importantly solutions, for those experiencing tough times, in your pub?


If that's a "yes", then you're a COMMUNITY PUBLICAN and the team behind Great Aussie Pubs want to hear from you...

  • Do you make all your customers feel welcome and comfortable in your pub?
  • Do you want to see your patrons get back on the road to good mental health and good times in the simplest of ways?
  • Do you believe the pub has an active role in dealing with people's mental health in a positive way and getting them back to feeling great again?
  • Would you be willing to be part of a long table (communal eating) event later this year (2021) to promote positive mental health in the community.

If you answered yes to the questions above fill in the contact form below so you can be a part of the next event.


If you frequent a local pub doing great things then you can also nominate them for a PSP Day event below.
