Have you ever felt out of your comfort zone stepping into a new chapter of life? ⁣

Build Up Tassie provides support & skill-based learning for young people seeking employment and brought us in to chat about the importance of mental health awareness. ⁣

Navigating new surroundings, new people and new experiences can be challenging. A focus of Tash’s session was on how we support ourselves and those around us in times of change and challenge. ⁣

This was the second year in a row Stay ChatTY has worked with Build Up Tassie.⁣

What do you think this rig is worth? 🚜 ⁣

Cement Australia wanted their workers to hear some of Stay ChatTY’s key messages around mental health and suicide awareness. ⁣

Over two sessions James spoke to nearly all of the workers on site and in the mine. ⁣

When you can address an entire worksite at once, it can reduce the stigma around mental health and remind us all that seeking help is not a weakness. ⁣

Kindness is key when building good team culture 🔑 ⁣

The Kingston Crows Cricket Club reached out to us to educate their players, coaches and support staff on mental health. ⁣

The skills gained in the Sports Program can be  applied on field and in everyday life. ⁣

Have you ever faked a smile when inside you’re struggling? ⁣

In a world where we don’t know what people are thinking and a smile can be used to mask how we feel - asking a simple question about how someone is travelling can be helpful in starting a conversation.⁣

Checking in with those around you is important - but it’s just as important to check in with yourself too! ⁣

Team efforts can amount to big impact!⁣

Taking you right back to the years leading up to 2013 the graduate year at Hydro Tasmania undertook fundraising activities that created wonderful networking opportunities to bond the team and to support the community. ⁣

This year it was decided the profits would be provided to the Graduates chosen organisation – Stay ChatTY is the grateful recipient of those funds.⁣

Tash & Kat headed along to meet with the Graduates and hear about their fundraising efforts that led to an amazing total exceeding $6,000.00!⁣

This amount coming across to Stay ChatTY will mean big things for us in 2020. The funds will enable us to have Tash (as our Community Engagement Officer) extend her hours starting in January. Having Tash here for more of each week will allow us to engage more with the life blood of Stay ChatTY – our sponsors, third party fundraisers and the Tasmanian community.⁣

This is also means Tash has more time to invest in some exciting new initiatives launching in 2020 – Thank you Hydro Tasmania for making this possible!⁣

Do you play sport for a club, or train with a group of people? ⁣

The Stay ChatTY Sports Program aims to normalise the conversation of mental health, provide tips on staying mentally fit and how spot the signs if a team mate is struggling.⁣

James recently visited the New Town Cricket Club to share these messages and to remind us all that kindness is basically a super power ☺️🦸🏻‍♂️ ⁣

In 2019 Tas Ports had our team along to share our workplace/community presentation multiple times across the state. Their team has been supportive of what we do here at Stay ChatTY and have an ongoing desire to collaborate.⁣

As you drive around Tassie you will now see all the Tas Ports vehicles sporting a Stay ChatTY sticker. The Stay ChatTY sticker is your reminder to check in with those around you and find out how they are travelling. Given how active the Tas Ports team are across the state, those reminders will be everywhere!⁣

Thank you to Tas Ports for your ongoing support!⁣ ⁣

Last week James delivered the Sports Program to the South Hobart Sandy Bay Sharks Cricket Club.⁣

In a first, player Harry Nichols bravely shared his lived experienced to his peers before the presentation took place.

We were thrilled to hear that Harry took this opportunity to share his story when he saw that Stay ChatTY was coming to his club. We were then able to provide Harry with some tips on how to share his story safely, which he did so well. ⁣

We would like to extend a thank you to the club for making this topic a priority, and to Harry for displaying courage and vulnerability that will help his community be reminded that it is okay to not be okay. ⁣

Recently, the Sports Program presented to the North Hobart Cricket Club. ⁣

The club saw the need to highlight mental health as a topic, and what better way to begin by having James attend the team dinner night for a chat. ⁣

The Sports Program is comprised of 3 main parts. 1) A 45-minute team talk 2) A Sporting round and 3) Assistance in creating a mental health policy (through the Good Sports - Healthy Minds Program) ⁣
