2019 Men's Health Business Breakfast
29 September - Ian McLachlan Room Adelaide Oval 7.15-8.45am
Dr Roger Sexton AM, Chairman of Beston Global Food Company Ltd and Chairman of the Board of Patrons of the Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men's Health invites you to join other representatives of the South Australian business community for the 2019 Men's Health Business Breakfast.
In keeping with the theme of previous breakfasts, the focus will be on mental health. The facts are undeniable. Three million Australians are living with anxiety or depression. One in five women and one in eight men will experience depression in their lifetime. Each day eight people lose their life to suicide, six out of eight are men. The rates of suicide are higher for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men, Suicide is more than double the national road toll. In the workplace, one in five employees will take time off due to mental health-related illness costing Australian businesses approximately $10.9 billion per year and this doesn't factor in a loss of productivity whilst at work.
This year we will hear from South Australian, Anthony Hart, a social entrepreneur and mental health ambassador, and a successful businessman, building an eight store PETstock franchise group with his family. This experience has given him valuable insight into what it takes to drive a profitable business that is built upon a foundation of high performance as a result of nurturing a mentally healthy organisational culture.
Anthony transformed his own mental health crises into a new opportunity. Harnessing a natural entrepreneurial flair, he decoded the basic steps he was using to recover from depression, and devised strategies to actively measure his healing journey. As a result, he founded what is today known as the Lifeback Tracker program. This award-winning mental health support program is designed to empower anyone confronted by a mental health challenge with a powerful four-step framework to help better confront and overcome early stages of anxiety and depression.
