A Community Calendar Project

Country SA PHN are leading a community calendar project. The Project will produce a rural community calendar featuring men and women from rural communities. In brief, Country SA PHN are seeking 6 men and 6 women (aged 18 and over) from farming in the South East region who have experience of mental ill health and help-seeking to be featured in a South East community calendar. Representation across diverse industries is desirable; these could include forestry, wine industry, crops, dairy, sheep/cattle, aquaculture, among others. It is hoped that the calendar will help smash stigma around mental health issues and help-seeking and create greater community awareness of the support services available.
