"Are You Bogged Mate?" workshops are a mental health initiative presented by Mary O'Brien. Boots on the Ground proudly supported Mary as she presented 10 workshops across northern Tasmania between 15-18 March 2021. 

Mary's truly unique workshops engaged farmers and industry groups. Each event included social barbecues and get-togethers to help form social connections, and to identify follow-up support.

The impact of these presentations cannot be underestimated.  The Boots on the Ground Committee wishes to thanks Mary for her compassion, common sense, and her no nonsense method of communicating her message ensuring it resonates with those who needed it most.  Her ability to engage with people on the land is obvious in the images below taken during the intensive 3 day event.
