Mental illness does not discriminate by age, gender or location.
Thankfully there has been a significant increase in mental illness awareness over the years, as well as a reduction in the stigma often attached to it as well.
Part of the increase in awareness and reduction in stigma is down to the work of the plethora of organisations dedicated to the cause.
Mentoring Men is one of those organisations.
The organisation paired mentors and mentees together to provide support to those in need.
It has been a successful concept and one I am glad to say is picking up momentum – particularly in my home region of Macarthur.
Mentoring Men will hold a walk and talk at the Claymore Community Centre, next Thursday, February 25, from 6pm till 7:30pm.
It's just one of many ways the organisation is engaging the local community and making a big difference to the lives of many.
I look forward to seeing just how much Mentoring Men achieves in the Macarthur Community in the short, medium and long term.
Thank you to all those at the organisation for your hard work and dedication.
