He has over 5 years of experience in contract management and a Master's Degree in Law. After his father was diagnosed with schizophrenia during his childhood and after overcoming his own depression, Paul became a passionate Mental Health Advocate, training people and organisations on Mental Health Awareness.

Robert Gualtieri is an advocate for the right of inclusion for everyone, regardless of race, religion, colour or sexual orientation and in extending empathy and compassion to all. He is also passionate about understanding ones underlying, and subconscious beliefs and how they've been formed from childhood. These sensitivities, combined with his own mental health struggles with anxiety, have created an awareness of how widespread men's mental health struggles are, and the silent struggles of so many. Men's mental health issues, especially in young men, are much more prevalent than most people are aware of and he feels strongly that there is a need to address this issue individually, collectively, and through governments, healthcare providers, and private institutions.
