The wheels are now in motion for a return to some kind of normal.⁣

As we start getting back to our community, lets all remember ‘normal’ is most likely going to look different for everyone. ⁣

We have all moved through challenges over the last few months and for some of us those challenges may last a while longer - let’s be aware of others and be mindful of how others are coping throughout yet another transition of change. ⁣

Let’s all offer patience, empathy and kindness - that’s to yourself and those around you. ⁣

Tomorrow kicks off Men’s Health Week for 2020.⁣

We feel this is an important week for men, and a timely reminder to get a few checks and check-ins done that we might have been putting off for a while.⁣

Throughout the week, we will be sharing various links to forums and information for us all to check out to get a better understanding of the issues men face each and every day.⁣

If you’re a man, or know one that needs a hand, make sure you reach out to them for a chat, or even a reminder to head off and check-in with professional services when needed. ⁣

Starting this morning at 9am, Launceston’s very own Andrew Palmer will be dancing non-stop for 24 hours. ⁣

Andrew has rallied many people both local and around the country to take part, all whilst fundraising for both us and the Examiner Newspaper’s Winter Relief Appeal.⁣

We are so excited to keep connected with Andrew’s journey throughout the 24 hours via his live stream on FB & IG. We know this effort will take strength, courage and mental resilience! ⁣

We are right behind you @palmersdancestudioofficial – you’ve got this!⁣

The time has come for Kat’s next chapter!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We are equally excited and saddened that this week marks Kat’s last week with the Stay ChatTY Team until 2021 as she heads off to welcome her first baby into the world.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Kat has such a positive impact on our team – she is so caring, thoughtful and supportive. We will miss her amazing ideas, super productivity work ethic and her amazing presentation and communication skills.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We know Kat has made such a big impact on students across the state within the Schools Program and it will be a tall order to have someone fill her shoes.⁣
⁣⁣
We are excited to welcome Kat back into the team in 2021; until then we hope Kat enjoys every moment of this exciting time with her husband Tom (and sends us a ridiculous amount of baby photos!). ⁣⁣

This week Mitch was invited along by the Minister for Mental health and wellbeing Jeremy Rockliff, to create a special video for Men’s Shed Tasmania.⁣⁣

Men’s Shed groups across Tasmania, like many other groups across our state, are doing it tough without their usual connection, communication and comradery. So a positive message to remind everyone that “back to normal” might not be too far away was important.⁣⁣

We have worked with Men’s Shed all across Tasmania over the years, and we look forward to many more visits in the not too distant future.⁣⁣

Thank you Minister Rockliff for continuing to value and support Mitch and Stay ChatTY.⁣⁣

As Tasmania is starting to see a gradual easing of restrictions it can be tricky to remain patient. ⁣

With some time to go before our lives will start to resemble normality again, it is important to remember we are all in this together and to stay strong for that little bit longer! We’ve got this! ⁣

Keep safe. Keep connected. Keep going. ⁣

Sports Program Project Officer – James⁣⁣ 👨🏻
⁣⁣
After only a few weeks since sporting competition stopped, I was already seeing clubs finding new ways to connect and challenge each other. I wanted to help.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I have been developing a resource for coaches and club leaders to add structure to online club-based activities that boost connections and culture.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
By categorising wellness into five pillars: physical, social, emotional, mental and spiritual I started to populate lists of activities that clubs can engage in online, while we are all away from the club rooms (for now).⁣⁣
⁣⁣
With the ongoing assistance of our youth reference group, the activity lists are growing. I hope to provide clubs with a resource that can not only provide ideas for activities, but to help its members reach out and be able to check in with their teammates in this challenging time.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
A club can adopt just a few ideas, all the way to following a weekly schedule that covers off activities across all five pillars of wellness.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I am very excited to provide clubs with this free resource that will be available very soon!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Until then, keep safe. Keep connected. Keep going.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
-James

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums out there. Fur-baby mums that’s you too! ⁣

We hope that today brings an opportunity to check in with a loved one, a call, a text or hopefully some in person visits as restrictions ease. Especially for our brand new mums.⁣

We understand that today might not be an easy day for a lot of mothers or for those that have lost theirs, we are certainly thinking of you all today 💙❤️⁣

Are you part of a workplace or community group?⁣ 🧑‍💻👩🏼‍🎨👩‍🚒👨🏻‍🔧 ⁣

Here is a message from Tash:⁣
⁣ 
As we face collective challenge and change prioritising our mental health is so important. Creating connection through different means was my first goal to ensure Stay ChatTY could continue to share our key messages with workplaces and community groups across Tasmania whilst restrictions are in place keeping us safe. ⁣
⁣ 
The development of live and recorded online content is almost ready to be launched after a few solid weeks of focus. Not unlike many of us, I have struggled to find a new routine working from home, tackled feelings of loneliness and at times felt totally exhausted. I am grateful I had a big goal to focus on when my mind and body felt like all they wanted to do was melt into the couch. ⁣

The digital content is focused on the importance of recognising the emotions and feelings we are all working through, speaking up when we need to chat and an overall focus on tips and actions to support ourselves and those around us as we continue to face the COVID-19 situation. ⁣

I got into the 'studio' with Creative Grit to record the content. Thanks to the team at Creative Grit for quickly helping turn our idea into a reality! ⁣
⁣ 
In early May the Digital Workplace & Community Content will be released. This will offer live and recorded online content over four sessions. The aim of the sessions is skill-focused as well as keeping each session to 15 minutes for accessibility and flexibility for all kinds of organisations, teams and groups. ⁣

Whether it be through a PC, laptop or smartphone I am excited to connect with everyone in the coming weeks – it may not be the same as in-person BUT with a little bit of extra effort, this is a great way to stay connected and support yourself and those around you during this time. ⁣

If you’d like to chat about accessing our live or recorded Stay ChatTY Workplace and Community Digital Content please email natashac@reltas.com.au to work out the best fit for you!⁣

Are you in school at the moment? ⁣👩🏼‍🏫📚🍎

Here’s a message from Kat and Julia:⁣ ⁣
With school closures and cancelled events, many young people may be feeling anxious, isolated and disappointed. During this time, we really want to make sure staff members, teachers and young people are still receiving our key messages around promoting positive mental health. ⁣

We will be working hard in the next few weeks to put together online educational resources to help support the wellbeing of those around us, especially those who may already be vulnerable or suffering from mental health difficulties.⁣

Be kind to yourself and others - Engage in healthy activities that you enjoy doing and find relaxing. Take a break from social media and news each day to connect with something you love doing.⁣

Take care. ⁣

Kat and Julia - Schools Program Project Officers⁣

Stay ChatTY would like to send our thoughts and prayers to all of our friends and family in the North West of Tasmania.⁣

We as a state are in this fight against COVID-19 together, and we need to unite to show support to our fellow Tasmanian’s. ⁣

Remember where possible to stay home, stay safe, and keep finding new ways to stay connected.⁣

Easter 2020 is going to look a bit different than normal for all of us. ⁣

But that doesn’t mean we cannot find joy and connection at this time. Jump on that phone call to a bestie, video call your grandparents and take the time to relax and reboot in the comfort of your own home. ⁣

Thank you to all of the amazing humans who will work over the Easter period to keep us all safe - we are very grateful for you! ⁣

The Stay ChatTY Team will be taking a well earned break until Wednesday 15 April preparing to launch back into some exciting initiatives coming your way soon! ⁣

See you when we are back on board! 🐣 Take care, stay safe & share kindness!

Bringing people together to build connection was the main goal for the UTAS team when they assembled a bake-off early this year. ⁣

The whole team were invested in the process and all had a lot of fun and laughter along the way. ⁣

We are very appreciative of their efforts and it was a pleasure to spend some time with the ladies pictured to hear all about the experience. There is so much value in a friendly conversation and a smile. We are excited to be involved again next year 😊 #staychatty
