Big Boys Breakfast
This event has a specific focus on men’s mental health, but all are welcome. Art of the Minds is proud to present the second annual BBB with special guest Glenn Manton, accomplished AFL player for Essendon and Carlton, to help us shine a light on mental illness from a male perspective.
Why do we need to have this conversation?
8.6 Australians die every day by suicide. That's more than double the road toll (ABS, 2022). 75% of those who take their own lives are male (ABS, 2022). An unknown number of Australians attempt suicide every year, with some estimates suggesting this figure may be over 65,000 (Slade et al, 2009).
