When we hear of Domestic Violence , immediately we think of a women being abused, either physically, emotionally or even both. "Statistically, domestic abuse of male victims is less common than of female victims, particularly where the abuser is a woman. This lack of recognition that relationship abuse can be committed against a man might make male victims less able to understand their experience as abuse. Men are socialised not to see themselves as victims"-https://www.saferresource.org.au/what_about_male_victims

Walk ‘n’ Talk For Life is completely free!
You don’t have to be someone affected by suicide to attend a walk and you do not have to share your life story to strangers.
The aim is to bring people and communities together to support one another, to make connections, to maybe lend an ear, to offer empathy and to share the love, compassion and understanding that is often missing in our communities.
Shannon Nevin is an Australian former professional rugby league footballer who played with the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles and the Balmain Tigers in the National Rugby League and its predecessor the Australian Rugby League.
“I have had people attend my walks who have attempted suicide or who have lost loved ones to suicide. These people appreciate the support and love they receive at these events and some have openly told me that these walks give them the strength to live on.”
To create comfortable, friendly, walking groups Australia wide that connect our communities and aid mental health

Low Libido/ Decreased Fertility
For pregnant women, there is an increased risk of miscarriage and multiple obstetric complications
Hyperthyroidism, Graves' Disease & Thyroid Eye Disease
Hyperthyroidism, or Graves’ Disease, is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism. It is triggered by the immune system producing antibodies that stimulate the thyroid gland to increase the size of the gland and produce excessive amounts of thyroid hormone.
If you suffer from Hyperthyroidism, your symptoms could include:
Weight Loss/Increased Appetite
Loose Bowel Motions/Diarrhoea
Tiredness/Weak Muscles, particularly around the upper arms and thighs
Enlarged thyroid gland
Menstrual Changes/Fertility Problems
