Australian television and radio personality, Founder Gotcha4Life

Gus Worland is a popular and much-loved Australian television and radio personality and the driving force behind the mental fitness charity Gotcha4Life. Gus started the not-for-profit foundation in 2017, following the success of the ABC series Man Up and losing a very close friend and life mentor to suicide. He realised he had the ability and networks to make a real difference, to help people develop the emotional muscle, resilience and social connections needed to build mental fitness and prevent suicide.

His presentations engage, educate and empower. He is passionate about inspiring action, creating meaningful mateship and encouraging everyone to speak up, reach out and develop the skills and connections needed for mental wellbeing.

He champions Meaningful Mateship and wants everyone to have a Gotcha4Life mate – a go-to person you can rely on and talk to about anything when times are tough, so no one has to worry alone.

More about Gus Worland:

Gus Worland is an Australian television and radio personality and director and founder of mental health foundation, Gotcha4Life.

Gus is well known for his series of reality television programs for Foxtel (An Aussie Goes Barmy, An Aussie Goes Bolly and An Aussie Goes Calypso) and A&E (Marathon Man). He has also covered Commonwealth and Olympic Games for Foxtel.

Gus is a sporting tragic and continues to use his passion to entertain audiences. He appears on Fox Sports hosting Cricket Tragic.

Gus spent 10 years in breakfast radio on Triple M. Starting on The Grill Team in 2009, within two years they doubled their ratings for this time slot, and Gus was awarded ‘Best On Air Newcomer’ at the 2010 Australian Commercial Radio Awards. The Grill Team changed to Moon Man in the Morning in 2019.

Hosting the 2016 ABC series Man Up was pivotel for Gus. The series was an exploration of modern masculinity and men’s mental health issues – challenging masculine stereotypes and getting men better connected and breaking the silence around suicide.

Following the enormous impact of Man Up and receiving the shattering news that his friend, mentor and father figure, who seemed to have it all, had taken his life, Gus founded Gotcha4Life with the mission to target Men’s Mental Health.

Gotcha4Life today drives real change and funds educational workshops and innovative training programs throughout Australia that build mental fitness in all individuals, organisations and communities to activate strong, open and binding relationships.

He has been married for over 20 years to Vicky and has three teenage kids. Women want him to meet their mothers and blokes want to be him: Gus just wants to give them all a hug.

He was an enormously engaged ambassador for the 2018 Invictus Games and a proud ambassador for men’s clothing brand Johnny Bigg.
