Real Mates Talk
This time on Talking Mental Health we catch up with the team from the Whitsunday, Isaac and Mackay Suicide Prevention Community Action Planning Group to chat about the Real Mates Talk campaign that aims to reduce male suicide rates across the region. Around three-quarters of the people who die by suicide in the Whitsunday, Isaac and Mackay region are men. These men are aged from teenagers to the elderly – they are our brothers, sons, husbands, workmates, friends and neighbours.
Self-care is an ongoing commitment to look after yourself through helpful behaviours that protect your health during periods of stress. In this edition, selectability counsellor, Suz Bocking, discusses the importance of self-care and how to put it into practice ... have a pen and paper ready as she'll take you through a short activity!
Team Jefferson Coast 2 Coast
selectability has joined forces with local cycling crew, Team Jefferson, to raise funds and awareness for mental health and together they're taking their message Coast 2 Coast in an effort to break a cycling record. The partnership draws on selectability's commitment to improving the mental wellbeing of regional Queenslanders through its Bike Shed and Team Jefferson's goal of riding from Cottesloe Beach, Perth to the steps of the Sydney Opera House to raise awareness for mental health while beating the current record.
After listening to this podcast you can find more information and ways to donate by visiting selectability or Team Jefferson.
