Norm Haley: It means getting guys together for mateship which helps us to open up about health and find help, it also opens minds up about mental health and looking out for their friends. I think it’s about sharing and receiving experiences to learn.
Paul Anders: Mateship, something to do that gets me out of the house, it’s a community within a community. Being isolated on a property is hard on mental health, so it’s good to get together with others to talk.
Allan Hilder: Gets me out of mother’s hair for doing jobs at home, drinking tea and coffee, telling lies and telling yarns. Most important is the camaraderie and it’s pleasing to work in the new shed.
