Wheatbelt Men’s Health Inc delivering the Regional Men’s Health Initiative (RMHI) has been immortalised in the Reflections Gallery of the new WA Museum.
The following quote is from an article in the RAC horizons magazine:
“For lovers of traditional history, the Reflections gallery features defining WA moments and landmarks, such as the advent of the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the Old Swan Brewery.”
We are in fine company with our special story being encapsulated in this same space in the “Reflections Gallery”.
This process started back in May of 2018 when we were contacted by the Assistant Curator for the Western Australian Museum working on the New Museum project. The following is quote from this correspondence:
“One of the key themes in the new museum is being Western Australian which will share the varied perspectives of Western Australian people; exploring ideas of identity, diversity, community, real lives, beliefs and values; and the meaning of country, place, people and culture to diverse communities. One area of content that I am currently researching is our developing approach in Western Australia towards mental health and wellbeing”
To have on display both the history of WMH Inc (2002 to 2019) and the evolution and development of The Regional Men’s Health Initiative is important validation of the longevity of our outstanding work in the mental health and wellbeing space throughout regional, rural and remote WA.
