Episode 20: Supporting mates bogged in the bush
In Episode 20 of Build ‘Em Up, we chat to Mary O’Brien, founder, director and CEO of Are You Bogged Mate?, a charity that helps country men talk about mental health and suicide. Mary is a passionate advocate for agriculture, was raised on the land and has worked with, for and beside country men – most importantly, she knows how to talk to them! Are You Bogged Mate? connects country men with lifesaving support services and enables prevention and early-intervention for mental health and wellbeing. This episode discusses mental health and suicide – if this brings up concerns for you or someone you know, we highly recommend Lifeline on 13 11 14 or Beyond Blue on 1300 22 4636.
