Bring your Dad, your son, your brother, your mate, your next door neighbour. Maybe bring men from your sports club, your work colleagues or old school mates. Let’s get men moving.

The track is an easy one, and there are shortcuts. Start from Hoo Hoo Haven, yes it exists, do a loop and come back to a free, delicious sausage in a roll. Sausages very kindly donated by Nigel’s Gourmet Butchers and rolls by Cripps Bakery. It is great to get local support.

The Men’s Table, TASDADS, The Man Walk, ManUp-TAS and Ascent Fitness have come together to put Launceston on the map for men.

When we turn attention to our mind, we are often delivered self-defeating messages such as: “I’m not smart enough”, “I don’t work hard enough”, or “I’m a terrible mum”. Whenever we hear one of these messages, it is our brains way of telling us: “I’m not good enough’.

You may think you are alone in hearing this message, however every person, no matter how successful, beautiful, or wealthy has their own version of the ‘I’m Not Good Enough Story”.

Come along to “Letting Go of The I’m Not Good Enough Story” to learn how to cope with this story when it inevitably shows up. There will be plenty of opportunity for questions and general discussion, as well as actionable tips for managing the “I’m not good enough story”.

The event is called THEIRS, which stands for; Talk, Hear & Help, Educate, Inform, Refer and Support. For the first THEIRS event, the focus will be on Suicide Awareness.

The purpose of these nights is to equip community members, parents, guardians, and individuals to look out for signs of someone struggling, what to do/say and where to seek further help.

Because the topic subject is quite confronting some people may experience multiple emotions or need to take a “break”. There will be psychologists present for the evening to help anyone who may need it; this is including volunteers. First responder stalls will be there on the night to better support the “refer” stage (such as headspace, Richmond, mental health council, e.g.).

THEIRS Event will see five unique perspectives from specialists, victim-survivors or advocates and health professionals on a panel sharing their knowledge and experience with the selected topic. These people will be known members among the community and will provided a positive impact in the way they present their talks to encourage conversations.

Doors open 6:30pm.

In this unusual time, with the complications of COVID19, these three words have even greater meaning to us all, we need to keep our community strong and we do this better together.

Circular Head Community & Recreation Centre

Smithton

The event is called THEIRS, which stands for; Talk, Hear & Help, Educate, Inform, Refer and Support. For the first THEIRS event, the focus will be on Suicide Awareness.

The purpose of these nights is to equip community members, parents, guardians, and individuals to look out for signs of someone struggling, what to do/say and where to seek further help.

Because the topic subject is quite confronting some people may experience multiple emotions or need to take a “break”. There will be psychologists present for the evening to help anyone who may need it; this is including volunteers. First responder stalls will be there on the night to better support the “refer” stage (such as headspace, Richmond, mental health council, e.g.).

THEIRS Event will see five unique perspectives from specialists, victim-survivors or advocates and health professionals on a panel sharing their knowledge and experience with the selected topic. These people will be known members among the community and will provided a positive impact in the way they present their talks to encourage conversations.

Doors open 6:30pm.
