Bundaberg Regional Council has teamed up with Peirson Services for Walk and Talk, which will celebrate International Men’s Day under the theme of Mates for Mates and Mental Health.
Walkers will take a stroll along Burnett River with the inaugural Walk and Talk event in support of men’s health.
Community Services portfolio spokesperson Cr Tracey McPhee said the aim of Walk and Talk was to encourage chatter amongst the men within the community.
She said there would also be a chance to stop along the way to engage in mindfulness exercises.
“It’s fantastic to work with the community towards reducing the stigma of mental illness and developing ways to inform and engage all community members of our region to support their mental wellbeing,” Cr McPhee said.
After the stroll along the river, walkers will stop for some discussions and make their way back to have a complimentary coffee or tea at River Cruz Café where they will continue chatting on the theme of how to stay mentally and physically well.
