SuicIde Prevention Program

Staying Alive 4 Men

IMG_0110 (2).jpg

UNDERSTANDING LIFE

This program was developed to assist blokes to learn new coping skills or reconnect with old survival skills to make living life a little easier. When you complete the program, share your new skills with mates so that everyone receives the benefit. Remember to reconnect to nature and sunshine (Vitamin D is important for good mental health) and set some time aside every other day to get outdoors.

As blokes we must learn that isolation will lead to loneliness which will lead to making some poor life decisions. It is strength to seek help early if you are feeling overwhelmed, it does take courage taking one small step but it could be life changing.

Social wellbeing is essential for a full and worthwhile existence; get into a habit of connecting to family and friends on a weekly basis. Join clubs and volunteer your time to sporting organisations or charities.

It is not selfish to sort your head out. You are the major priority and if you are not coping with life or having way too much going on in your head take time out to get it sorted. Counselling does work. Seek assistance early and oh yeah, "you do have to be a part of the process to get the full value".

The Staying Alive 4 Men Program is available to community's, businesses and sporting clubs. This is a free program and requires a minimum of 6 participants  The Program includes a Power Point presentation for 60 minutes with 15 minutes for questions and each participant can download the Well Man App which incorporates the 9 Tips for Staying Alive 4 Men (available March). For more information please send us an email.

A program about resilience, mentoring and youth engagement 

Positive Mentoring Program

IMG_2460.JPG

Too often we hear about what needs to be done or where there are gaps - to rarely do we provide solutions.

Sometimes you have to start small small, with just an idea

The Positive Mentoring Program was developed by Grant Westthorp Manager of the Men's Resource Centre to find solutions, to provide preventative measures, resilience and confidence to men.

Participants embark on an adventure-mentoring pathway, learning about decision making, resilience, confidence and consequences. 

Mentors provide support and guidance in a non-threatening platform with small groups or individuals that allows conversations, engagement and reflection.

This program looks to deliver solutions - and give young people some support (and fun) along the way.

We cater for many different groups and many different situations.

We have our own kayaks and mountain bikes for our participants to use, courtesy of a grant from the Commonwealth Bank. There are now two 8 session programs.

Comments from mentees:

The Positive Mentoring Program has helped me to find balance and harmony on an otherwise hectic life. The MRC has helped me to realise that there are other people who are less fortunate than me and even with trials and tribulations in my life that the more you think positive the more positive outcomes occur.

I came across this Mentoring program whilst getting a supply of Men’s Survival Handbooks for the men in my world. Grant gave me Hope for Recovery for my son when sadly family where not able to step up. Luke has started to come out of his shell again. Facing life with renewed Hope as someone was willing to come by his side and ride life with him. An excellent, life changing Program.
