Our Ambassador Program
Why we value our Ambassadors
Ambassadors help support our program by raising the profile of RAMHP in rural communities. They help us communicate the message that getting help for your mental health issues is acceptable and important.
They also help us to raise awareness about the challenges rural and remote communities face and the impact this can have on mental health and suicide rates.
Recently RAMHP was delighted when Australian television and radio personality Gus Worland came on board as a new Ambassador for the Program. You can watch Gus’s video here.
Gus’s high public profile and his genuine interest in men’s mental health and reducing stigma made him a highly sought-after Ambassador for our program. Men’s mental health is one of our key priority areas and we know rural communities will resonate with his warm, down-to-earth personality and his passion to make a real difference in mental health.
RAMHP plans to grow the Ambassador Program over the coming months.
A little bit more about Gus
Gus Worland is an Australian television and radio personality, best known for his series of television programs “An Aussie Goes” and more recently in his role as co-host of Triple M’s breakfast show, The Grill Team since 2009. Outside of his radio commitments Gus can currently be seen in his new ABC TV series Man Up, which aired in October 2016 and can be seen on iView. Man Up is an exploration of modern masculinity and men’s mental health issues – challenging masculine stereotypes, getting men better connected and breaking the silence around suicide.
After the success of Man Up, Gus has started a foundation called Gotcha4life (Gotcha4life.org). After hosting ABC’s Man Up documentary and losing a very close friend and life mentor to suicide, Gus wants to make a difference. Gus’s goal is to shift the relationship between current masculine norms, including stoic beliefs and suicide. To discover the secrets for men to survive in the modern world, Gus wants to help and support people who are making a difference, saving lives and redefining what it really means to be a man today.
