Mind Your Mates Day
As the Grand Final long weekend approached in September, Rokon spotlighted the impact ill mental health can have within our industry. We celebrated Rokon’s first “Mind Your Mates Day” with BBQs at Amaroo, Windermere, and Green Link, fostering a culture of checking in and staying connected.
Honouring the Grand Final spirit, AFL legends Michael Tuck, Russell Morris and Russell Green graced us with their invaluable insights and personal experiences. Their narratives of camaraderie and resilience underscored the importance of standing by our mates and the transformative power of asking, “R U OK?”
While our industry often champions a ‘push through’ ethos, moments like “Mind Your Mates Day” remind us of the vital need for connection, reflection, and mutual care. With the Grand Final weekend behind us, the enduring message of “Mind Your Mates” and the importance of “R U OK?” initiatives shine brightly, encouraging us to continuously prioritise the well-being and unity of our community on and off-site.
