This Midweeker will be held in loving memory of the ever resplendent Rhys Summergreene. Rhys Summergreene sadly lost his battle with Stage 4 Cancer in January, Menslink wanted to take the the opportunity to honour and remember him and his contribution to our organisation on the date he was supposed to deliver his own Midweeker. Rhys was a respected and loved Businessman from Peter Blackshaw Real Estate. He was a local Canberra man who dusted himself off after a business relationship fell apart, only to learn shortly after that he had a highly aggressive form of Cancer. Rhys was known for his philanthropy, fundraising and long standing, distinguished career in property. He found great reward working with ‘A Cure for Freyja’, The Cancer Council, Red Cross, Menslink and many other foundations, all whilst fighting his own illness. Rhys injected his own brand of humour when telling his story and he employed his own unique strategies to overcome depression in its many forms. Come hear Rhys’ story, as written by him and told by those who loved him most. Midweekers are available to women and men of all ages who want to come and listen to inspiring stories from our local men, as well as to understand some of the key issues facing young guys in our region. You don’t have to be a guy to come to a Midweeker – just interested in supporting young guys and their…

Shane grew up in Sydney's Mount Druitt as one of six children in a family troubled by drugs, alcohol and violence. He dropped out of school at just 15 years old, later taking a job with Australia Post. Shane eventually found a pathway into tertiary study and he went on to complete not one but three university degrees. Shane Drumgold was appointed the ACT Director of Public Prosecutions in December 2018, a job his 15 year old self would probably never have imagined possible! Shane's story is one of resilience and hard work, really embodying the Menslink message of 'Everything Is Possible'. https://www.canberratimes.com.au/national/act/shane-drumgold-announced-as-new-act-dpp-20181211-p50lf4.html Midweekers are available to women and men of all ages who want to come and listen to inspiring stories from our local men, as well as to understand some of the key issues facing young guys in our region.

If you’ve heard David on breakfast radio or SBS world news, you would get the sense that this man is articulate, intelligent, humorous and professional. David has struggled with his mental health about a decade now, using different vices to try to cure his inner pain. David is quoted as saying “Too often it is overlooked and ignored. Depression isn’t just feeling sad or a little blue. It's an illness and the end result can be fatal.” David first publicly spoke about his battle with depression in 2018 in the hope of encouraging other people to speak out about their mental health issues and help end the stigma. David will be speaking on the eve of 'R U OK? Day' and 12 months on from when he first spoke publicly about his experiences. https://www.canberratimes.com.au/national/act/david-sharaz-reveals-personal-battles-as-he-urges-others-to-ask-ru-ok-20180906-p5024c.html Midweekers are available to women and men of all ages who want to come and listen to inspiring stories from our local men, as well as to understand some of the key issues facing young guys in our region.

Menslink Midweeker with Damon Smith

To most, Damon Smith is the General Manager of Construction at Geocon, Canberra's largest residential builder. Damon runs a tight ship, he knows what outcome he wants and he works incredibly hard to make it happen. His presence on a construction site causes a flurry of activity and he is never backward in coming forward. But those who know Damon outside of his professional life, know of his generosity, good humour and story telling ability. Damon's formative years were likely not what most would imagine them to have been; but his tenacity and resilience have seen him succeed beyond probably what he had ever imagined possible. Damon has faced more than his fair share of trials on his journey, unbeknownst to those outside his inner circle. Midweekers are available to women and men of all ages who want to come and listen to inspiring stories from our local men, as well as to understand some of the key issues facing young guys in our region. You don’t have to be a guy to come to a Midweeker – just interested in supporting young guys and their…
