Mental health and crisis intervention
Description of charity's activities and outcomes:
Spur Projects produce a wide range of innovative and demographic specific, mental healthprojects that give men the resources, skills and language they need in order to take action for theirmental health. Our main activities during the 2016 financial year were as follows:How is the World Feeling?"How is the World Feeling?, an app for smart devices, was the worlds largest ever real-timemental health survey. 10,144 people from 104 countries logged how they were feeling over sevendays, creating the an open-source database of emotions with over 57,000 submissions. The datacollected by the free app allows any individual, organisation or government to create moreeffective mental health initiatives to improve wellness and reduce the 800,000 suicides that occurglobally."How is the World Feeling?" was built using the same robust framework as Spur Project's 2014"How is Australia Feeling? campaign. It will return in 2018.Old MateMen aged 80+ suicide at a rate higher than any other age group in Australia, and 100,000 Australians are committed to changing that.#OLDMATE encourages the public to sign the online pledge to spend at least one hour per month with an "Old Mate" in their life, with the aim of creating over 1.2 million volunteer hours over the next year to improve mental health.Key contributing factors to poor mental health in the elderly are living with illness, isolation, and loss of independence, yet as a community, we can all help increase connection, skilling and the mental wellbeing of our elderly relatives, friends and neighbours.F.U.N.On a set date at a set time, people gather in a range of venues across the world to have a drinkand a chat. Its almost a standard night out. Almost.There are two rules to F.U.N.:1) You must meet at least one new person.2) You must share at least one failure in your life.We live in a competitive society where weaknesses, mistakes or failures are covered up, glossedover or ignored, rather than enjoyed for the glorious learning opportunity that they should be.F.U.N. is an opportunity to celebrate and own the failures we make in life and is an importanceexercise in vulnerability.Its being OK with vulnerability that is a core competency in people taking action for their mentalhealth. So although F.U.N. is, on the surface, just a fun night out, it is subversive mental healthtraining.
