1 in 5 Aussies will experience a mental health condition in any given year.
We know there’s greater challenges for Aussies living in regional and remote areas due to stigma, access to services, isolation and pressures from drought. We know regional communities need our support, so we’re packing up a bus, and bringing the ‘Get Talkin’ Tour’ to High Schools, Footy Clubs and communities in Regional NSW.
We’ve partnered with NSW Positive Rugby Foundation and in 6 months the Get Talkin’ Tour has visited 22 towns, reaching 3,259 people and empowering them to take charge of their mental health.
The Get Talkin’ Tour aims to provide communities with the tools and skills to look out for their own wellbeing and that of their mates. It’s a day designed to bring the whole community together to start important convos and promote positive wellbeing. We even chuck in a free BBQ, and a game of footy with the Waratahs. Everyone is welcome!
