POWERFUL presentations about helping country blokes talk about mental health and suicide are helping break down the sigma often associated with the topic.

A key theme of the 2021 Rotary FNQ Field Days, a Health and Wellbeing Avenue has been set up to provide men with a diverse range of information, support and services.

The event is also proud to have Mental Health advocate Mary O’Brien as this year’s guest speaker, sponsored by the Mareeba & Dimbulah Community Bank Branches.

Ms O’Brien travels across the country with her ‘Are You Bogged Mate?’ initiative aiming to boost awareness and start a conversation with the broader community about the rising issue of depression and suicide rates among men in rural areas.
