This year is the first annual Shorts Day by organisation SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY
SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY works to promote positive mental health and prevent suicide by normalising conversations about mental health and encouraging people to seek help when they need it.
Mitch McPherson established the organisation in 2013 after his younger brother Ty died by suicide. Mitch shares his personal story of loss to encourage others to speak up and seek help when they have issues or go through difficult times.
At MouthWorks, we know that caring for your mental health is essential.
We are proud to participate in the Shorts Day event this year, raising money for this organisation and their partnership with Relationships Australia, which delivers suicide prevention and mental health promotion programs across Tasmania and Australia.
We hope to raise over $1,000 this year with donations and to raise awareness about this powerful collective between SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY and Relationships Australia by wearing our shorts in the middle of the frigid Tasmanian winter on Shorts Day which is Monday, 21st of June.
Our commitment to supporting mental health starts with us.
We recognize that not everyone feels comfortable for reaching out when in times of need. At MouthWorks, we hope to spread not only awareness but to break down the negative stigma surrounding mental health issues.
We have increased our ability to provide counselling and psychology services statewide, even meeting needs in the far reaches of the NorthWest in Tasmania, including King's Island, and even as far South as Huonville.
Call our office or self-refer on our website via the New Clients link to schedule your appointment today.

Almost instinctively we turn to rhythm and melody to instil comfort.As the baby grows into an older child, we gradually stop using music so freely. Obviously, they might be too big to […]
