Red Dust Healing empowers men’s health and wellbeing

GRAMS recently delivered a Red Dust Healing workshop in Carnarvon as part of the GRAMS commitment to educate and empower men’s health across the Mid West, Gascoyne, and Murchison regions.


This activity is supported by WA Primary Health Alliance as part of the Australian Government’s Suicide Prevention Activities.


The Red Dust Healing is a program aimed at improving Aboriginal men’s health through a holistic approach. The workshops address mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing and support men with resources and tools to confront the problems that are relevant to their own lives.


14 local community members participated in the workshop held at the GRAMS Gascoyne Outreach Service where they learned more about the factors that affect their lives and identify areas for development and improvement through self-evaluation.


Dane Waters from Health Communication Resources Inc supported the workshop by collaborating with the participants to put together recordings and videos promoting mental health messages.


The messages focus on how men can get help if they are experiencing mental health issues and that they’re not alone, and it’s okay to ask for help. The voice recordings are now playing on Radio MAMA across the region.


The men from the Red Dust Healing workshop have started working on their own Aboriginal Men’s Group that will empower other Aboriginal men in the community to take charge of their own health and wellbeing.
