Flood Recovery Expo

Our Flood Recovery Expo will be a relaxed evening where industry partners and the agriculture community can come together to share information and support following what has been a difficult few months with floods.

The evening will be highlighted by guest speaker, Mary O'Brien from Are You Bogged Mate? Mary was raised on a sheep and cattle station in South West Queensland. She is a passionate advocate for all sectors of agriculture and has a deep understanding of the diverse challenges faced by rural communities. Mary aims to reduce rural male suicide by breaking down the stigma, making blokes feel understood and by providing women with insights into how blokes communicate.

Rural communities everywhere continue to lose men to suicide and many more struggle in silence. Mary uses analogies and humour to explain mental health in a way that is relatable and resonates with rural people.
