NORTH Metropolitan MLC Peter Katsambanis hosted a mental health forum with the Joondalup Men’s Shed and Mental Health Minister Andrea Mitchell late last year.
“It was great to catch up with the members of the Joondalup Men’s Shed and showcase their wonderful work to the minister,” he said. “These forums are a great opportunity for the minister to update locals on the work being done in mental health and for the members to raise issues that are important to them.”
Men’s Sheds are community-based, not-for-profit organisations accessible to all men. The primary activities of the Men’s Sheds are the provision of safe, friendly, and welcoming places where men are able to work on meaningful projects with others.
The objective of Men’s Sheds is to advance the health and wellbeing of their members and to encourage social inclusion.
