A Simple Conversation

Could Save Someone’s Life

#LetsTalk About Man Anchor

Man Anchor is a grassroots mental health and well-being movement designed to create opportunities for discussion, education and action on mental health issues that affect people every day.
We understand the power of a simple conversation and want to empower individuals with the tools needed to reach their local communities.

 

Meaning Of Anchor

“A person or thing that provides stability or confidence in an otherwise uncertain situation.”

Understanding Mental Health

Around one in five Australians will experience mental health difficulties at some stage of their lives. So there’s a good chance that you or someone you know will need help one day. The first step in helping someone through difficult times is to have a basic understanding the underlying causes of mental heath issues and what you can do to support them and keep them safe.
