February 11: Help Stop Male Suicide in Australia
Are you concerned about the fact that five men a day die from suicide in Australia?
Last year, the Chair of the National Mental Health Commission, Professor Allan Fles, called for “sustainable, comprehensive, whole-of-community approaches aimed at halving suicides and suicide attempts over the next 10 years”.
How do we address the fact that three quarters of those suicides are men? Who will fly the flag for male suicide prevention and ensure the ambitious goal of reducing suicide by half, doesn’t miss the mark because it fails to help men?
With these questions in mind, Glen Poole, who recently relocated from the UK, is launching the Stop Male Suicide project, to help support the drive to halve male suicides in Australia. www.stopmalesuicide.com
February 18: Protecting Emilie
Protecting Emilie is a gripping story of injustice and what really happens to an innocent victim of emotional and physical child abuse when judges consistently make poor rulings. As a former stepmother of Emilie, Lisa Heim saw a decade of Emilie’s mother’s wrath toward Emilie’s father take an emotional and physical toll. Withholding custody, alienation, and making false child abuse allegations ultimately led to Emilie’s depression, PTSD, and Conversion Disorder diagnoses.
February 25: BuildingBoys
BuildingBoys was founded in 2013 by Jennifer L.W. Fink, a freelance writer and mother of four boys. It is a haven, resource and one-stop-shop for parents, educators, healthcare providers, community activists and anyone who cares about boys. And unlike other websites dedicated to boys, BuildingBoys includes the voices of the real experts - boys themselves. Their BuildingBoys panel of boys provides regular input to challenge and inspire their readers.
