    Hope's Annual Men's Health Week Kalgoorlie Golf Day is back this year, for the fourth year running. The event, which is all about social connection and raising awareness around men's physical and mental health, will take place on Friday 10th September from 11am-5pm. Please see picture for further details.

    No previous golf experience is required! There will be prizes for all skill levels and some awards that will have nothing to do with Golf itself (including the Best Dressed Team award).

    While the focus is on "Men's" health, the event is not strictly for men, and we encourage everyone to join in. 

    You can register as a full team of four or as an individual/pair/threesome and be placed in a team of four on the day. 

    Registration numbers are limited, so please register early to avoid missing out.

    While this is a free community event, there will be an opportunity to make a donation, which will go towards a local community group or service that supports Men's Mental Health in Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

  • In 2021, the WA Government created a Taskforce to develop a plan to make mental health services better for babies, children and young people (under 18). We need your help to develop this plan. In September, the Taskforce is running workshops with:

    - Young people who have had problems with their mental health

    - Families and carers of young people who have had problems with their mental health

    Workshop participants will be given a voucher worth $75. Some questions we might ask are: What experiences have you had of seeking help? When seeking help, what went well? Looking back, what would have made your experiences of seeking help better?

    3:30PM – 4:30PM
