“The hardest things to say are the most important things to say” .... it may sound like just another cliché, but just sit with it for a while.
When the lads from Tweed Coast Raiders Charity Cup (Jared and Mike) told us about the great response to the recent Mental Health First Aid workshop they rolled out in our local community, we put our hands up straight away to sponsor the delivery of Aboriginal Mental Health First Aid.
We’re proud of our team delivering Aboriginal Mental Health First Aid throughout the country, in remote Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander communities, but to deliver at home, that’s something pretty special too.
Thanks to everyone who supported this workshop to get up and running - Tweed Byron Suicide Prevention program, Cabarita Bowls & Sports Club and our deadly facilitators Jack de Thierry and Mark Watego.
We’re just half way through the workshop so far and already the benefits of having those difficult conversations have been felt and experienced. Let’s keep the conversations about mental health flowing.
