Launch of our #TeamChatTY Schools Program
In September, the Premier of Tasmania Will Hodgman (alongside some of his Parliamentary Colleagues) joined us at Mackillop College in Hobart, for the official launch our new schools program "#TeamChatTY.”
The Premier gave a short address at the event, backing the program with his full support. He was full of praise to the team at both Stay ChatTY and Relationships Australia Tas for our positive work around Suicide prevention.
Thank you to Donna Brown, Janine Toms and all the student leaders at Mackillop for putting today's launch together.
The #TeamChatTY Schools program has been designed to enhance young people's awareness, and build their knowledge and skills to achieve and maintain positive mental health.
This FREE 2 hour session, with an hour follow up session a week later, is designed for young people aged 14-25 (grades 9,10,11 and 12), and will be facilitated by myself, and also a qualified counsellor/social worker from Relationships Australia Tasmania.
If you would like to learn more about this exciting new program, then email us - firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or to make a pre-program meeting.
Mental Health Week
October 9-15 saw us have a massive week of awareness raising, we set out to remind everyone of this important week that had arrived.
We get excited for reminders such as Mental Health Week, because we know that they do just that, and remind people to have a conversation about mental health.
We carried the #TeamChatTY messages with us and made sure we all knew to #SpeakUp and #StayChatTY with friends, family, and all that you came in contact with.
Stay ChatTY Cup!
July 16 saw the blockbuster between Clarence Football Club and Lauderdale Football Club, which was the annual SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY Cup.
Both clubs were wearing these specially designed BLK jumpers for the match (pic below).
Not only was the Stay ChatTY Cup between the two clubs an amazing day for raising awareness to suicide, but it turns out we raised a whopping $5250 on the day also.
Thank you so much to everyone who donated money at the ground. Also a special mention to Lyden Builders for their generous donation in covering the specially made Bombers jumpers.
Thanks to Aiden Grace and Thor Boscott for this picture.
Welcome St. Lukes to Team ChatTY...
Late last year we officially partnered with our new friends at St.Lukes Health.
As we grow and look to spread our message across the country, support is essential. So with St.Lukes Health coming on board we will be assisted greatly in building the charity further.
We look forward to working together and helping raise awareness around our great state.
Thanks CEO Chris for the initiative.
Thanks to the Carlton Football Club who invited Mitch to present to this year’s draft picks in Tasmania just before Christmas.
Such a great opportunity for the charity to spread our message to the youth of this great club.
“96th Street” supporting Stay ChatTY!!!!
“96th Street” is a brand new watch range that has just launched online. Hobart lad Dylan Fyfe has started this fresh new collection, and has decided to support Stay ChatTY along the way. Purchasing the "Lincoln" watch, sees $15 from each sale come to us. So head to www.96thstreet.com.au to support this awesome local business by grabbing yourself a new suave watch. Thanks Dylan for dropping one into Mitch. Very nice.
Tour de Tig 2017
The inaugural Tour de Tig was held in 2014 and raised just over $25,000. In 2017, we are pleased to present Tour de Tig 2 (TDT2) which will see our founder Mitch, along with six of his good mates, run from Burnie to Hobart from the 21 – 25 March.
The aim of this event is to not only take on the huge physical challenge of running 360km on foot, but to create conversation around the state about the mental health issues that so many of us face. Stay ChatTY’s message is to break down the stigma that surrounds mental health issues by telling as many people along the way that it is OK TO NOT BE OK.
Good physical health can reduce stress and help you manage symptoms of mental health conditions like depression and anxiety. #TeamChatTY decided to give YOU the opportunity to be part of TDT2. #GetMovingInMarch encourages individuals to identify their own fitness goal to work towards whilst raising money for Stay ChatTY.
