The guest speaker at Sydney Rotary Club’s Breakfast Meeting on Tuesday 12th February will be Nyunggai Warren Mundine, AO.

As one of the nation’s top indigenous political advisers, Warren Mundine has dedicated his life to representing indigenous Australians in public office and highlighting horrific levels of family and sexual violence prevalent in Aboriginal families and communities.

A Bundjalung man from northern NSW, Warren also has paved the way for broader and more balanced representation of Aboriginal people in Australian politics.

He left school at 16 and has been a leading figure for more than three decades in working to close the gap between indigenous and non-indigenous communities. Warren became the first indigenous Australian to serve as president of an Australian political party when he was elected by the Australian Labor Party in 2006. He has since been ­chairman of many leading ­indigenous groups, including the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation and the Australian Indigenous Chamber of Commerce.

Warren is currently a columnist for The Australian and hosts his own show on Sky News Australia, Mundine Means Business. He is the author of the bestselling memoir In Black+White.

Let's Talk - Mental Health and Suicide in our Community

Join Wally Lewis AM and Dr Andrew Rochford and Let’s talk – Mental Health and Suicide in our Community.

More than 8 people die every day in Australia by suicide.

It has now been shown that 80% of deaths by suicide occur in the presence of one or more additional diseases or disorders. Mood disorders, such as depression, were reported in 43% of all suicides as a key factor, followed by drug and alcohol use disorders and anxiety.

With 1 in 5 Australians experiencing a mental health condition in any given year, there is an urgent need for more understanding and support around mental health and suicide within our community.

In response to these alarming statistics, Rotary Club of Sydney, in partnership with Wesley LifeForce, present Keith Garner AM, President of the Rotary Club of Sydney, Wally Lewis AM, Dr Andrew Rochford and others to discuss these issues. As our MC, Dr Andrew Rochford will guide us through the day and share his thoughts. Wally Lewis, legendary rugby league player and commentator, will share his journey with depression and debilitating seizures, his recovery and return to TV.

Let's take this opportunity to:

  • discuss what is happening now in Australia
  • hear real-life experiences
  • look at strategies to identify and address issues within our workplaces and community
  • talk to service providers within this area with the expertise to help and
  • we’d like your input on these issues and what we can do as individuals, businesses and as a community to make a difference.
We welcome you to be part of this worthwhile event and to come along as a guest and Let’s Talk – Mental Health and Suicide in our Community.

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided.

Ticket Cost: $50 per entry.

On Saturday 23 February 2019 at 10:00am (10am to 4pm - morning tea from 9.30am)
