Beyond the Bullsh*t

Conversations that look beyond mental health ‘awareness’ for men, and into the practical steps of wellbeing.

There’s a huge amount of discussion around mental health awareness and removing taboos. What’s missing is the practical steps that ensure we’re taking care of our own mental health and supporting our mates.

Facilitated by Jamie Stedman, a mental health training consultant who has worked with thousands of individuals and who has faced his own mental health battles, ‘Beyond the Bullshit’ is a casual program for men that will fill these important gaps.

There will be 4 sessions in total, each one is different and topics covered will include:

Stress and its various causes

Understanding the autonomic nervous system

Tools for managing difficult behaviours in others

Boosting resilience with simple daily actions

The neuroscience of mindfulness and self-esteem

Relaxation and mindfulness techniques

How to practise emotional granularity

How to foster metacognition (thinking about thinking)

The brain on shame, and how to rewire it

Self-coaching for behaviour change

Supporting others in a mental health crisis

Tickets are $15 per session with finger food provided. Sessions go for approximately 1.5 hours (give or take).

‘Beyond the Bullsh*t’ is proudly supported by local businesses Inland Digital, Kennards Hire, Orange Real Estate and The Agrestic Grocer.

Session dates:

· 9 October at 4pm
· 23 October at 4pm
· 6 November at 4pm
· 20 November at 4pm

The sessions will be held at The Agrestic Grocer, 426 Molong Road Orange. Come along and listen, grow your mental health toolkit, and to share your story if you feel inspired to do so.
