Mentally Fit EP’s Community Development Officer Emma Gale says men are invited to come along for a chat, a feed and a laugh with speakers Jez Edwards and Marc Ryan.

“We had this idea a little while ago – just the concept of bringing men together around having a laugh, some food and just general connection,” Ms Gale said.
