25 Nov March 18 – Mental Health & Raising Awareness
This month I set up in a business centre to attempt to raise awareness about mental health and what it actually is. The day went well, I engaged with a number of people to talk about their experiences and was able to provide some insight, the feedback was very positive.
Key learning from this experience was that most of the men I spoke to on this day had very little awareness of what our mental health actually means. This further highlighted the need to share such messages and connect with people to develop awareness and understanding. The starting point of accessing the help is becoming aware that you/your mate may be struggling with their mental health.
