Men's Mental Health: Two men share their stories, skills and wisdom to empower us to recognise depression and support those we love.
Join mental health advocates Pete Shmigel and Dan Price in conversation with Wendy Searle at this Conversation Club event on how depression impacts those we love, what we can do to help and where we can go for support.
Learn how to recognise the signs of depression
Dan and Pete have vast experience in recognising the sometimes subtle signs when people are struggling. And while women are three times more likely than men to reach out for help, six men on average take their lives every day. We'll learn how to spot the signs, what we should be asking and where we can go to ask for help.
We don’t have to feel helpless or completely isolated when confronted by mental health issues. There is much support at hand when we do reach out – for ourselves or for those we care for in our community who are struggling. This is an event for mums, sisters and partners and friends of men who are suffering anxiety or depression or people who are looking for some support or advice.
Meet great people and share a chat
At all Conversation Club events, we share the stories of brave people who experience an issue and then turn to a person with research based expertise in this area, who imparts information to empowers us in making better-informed decisions.
Due to the nature of the material discussed, this event is not suitable for people under 18.
But you're welcome to come early for a delicious meal or stay and chat over a cold beverage at The Imperial Hotel, our host for the event, who provide the venue at no cost for Conversation Club events.
Fifty percent of all profits from the event will be donated to the charities Roses in the Ocean and Australian Men’s Health Forum.
With a special performance by singer songwriter, William Brown.
