Cairns Mr Perfect, Mental Health’s Mate is holding an informal free BBQ for men at Sea Eagle BBQ Area on the Esplanade.

 

The format is simple, informal and completely inclusive. It is a chance to get out of the house in the sun, socialise and connect with some great people to form a supportive community. Mental health may be discussed at times and is purely optional.

 

Mr. Perfect is “Mental Health’s Mate”, a grassroots “pre-crisis” charity that creates community and connection by bringing men together at BBQs in local parks across Australia, to reduce isolation and encourage better mental health.

 

What happens at a BBQ?

– BBQ Hosts cook up a feed and introduce attendees to each other.

– Chat ranges from the everyday (sport, work, weather) to the deeper (mental health struggles, divorce, retirement, stories of hope and overcoming adversity).

– No clinical advice is given, just a supportive ear and community.

Who attends a BBQ?

– Anyone and everyone, but, generally 25-60 year old males, from lawyers, tradies, IT workers, students, retirees, single / divorced dads and everyone in between.

 

This great event is held monthly (Bad Weather back up location is Mudie’s Cafe).
