Social and emotional wellbeing has become a pressing concern in Australia, with alarming statistics revealing that nearly half of all Australian adults will grapple with mental health issues at some point in their lives. The challenges posed by this pervasive issue are multifaceted and deeply impactful. Every day, the nation mourns the loss of at least eight lives to suicide, and it’s noteworthy that five out of these eight individuals are men. Moreover, a staggering 65,000 people make attempts on their own lives each year.
