  • 'Are you bogged mate?' a chat about mental health in rural communities

    7 September 2021 7:00pm8:00pm
    Are you bogged mate?' struck a chord and highlighted that while there are services available for suicide prevention, there is a disconnect in the way depression is being communicated to country men. We want to fix this disconnect. Aiming to boost awareness this conversation invites the rural community about the rising issue of depression and suicide rates among men in rural areas.
