89. Education and Safe Places for Blokes; Meet Owen of the Regional Men’s Health Initiative

June 15, 2022

Today, we talk to Owen Catto, the Executive Officer of The Regional Men's Health Initiative, a not-for-profit organisation that raises awareness for men's wellbeing and health. It serves regional, rural, and remote Western Australia.

Owen will share what the organisation is doing to empower blokes and communities to take responsibility of their own health; how they are funded, who are in the team, what they do and don't, and the programs that they've developed and are in place to help blokes in their different stages of life.

One of the things that Owen shared in the podcast is how beautiful the community's response is whenever they go back to a place for another talk - which is 'Great to see you back'.

He also further emphasises the importance of following-up blokes - as he said, 'Blokes like to be followed-up'.
