Mary O’Brien

At Channel Country Ladies Day 2022, mental health advocate Mary O’Brien will be joining us to talk all things mental health, her journey in developing Are you bogged mate? and what we can all do to help support the country men in our lives.

Are You Bogged Mate? aims to help connect country men with support services and breakdown the stigma associated with seeking help, and start a conversation with the broader community about the rising issue of depression and suicide rates among men in rural areas.

Mary, who is known to many through her work, is a passionate advocate for agriculture, and understands the diverse challenges faced by the rural sector. We are looking forward to welcoming Mary to Windorah and hear her unique perspective on her life on the road supporting our rural communities.
