  | Holly Penketh Views: 2087

CFA Organisational Wellbeing would like to invite you to a special event virtual screening of the Happy Sad Man documentary and a live Q&A on Thursday 3 December with the filmmaker and special guests.

Virtual screening of documentary about men's mental health

Happy Sad Man is a charming and uplifting documentary that provides a truthful look at men's mental health with insight into the lives of five very different Australian men.

Touching, funny and tender, this must-see documentary is set to shine a light on and change the dialogue around masculinity and mental health.

By watching the film and attending the Q&A we are inviting you to be a part of this important conversation and culture change. For more information visit the Happy Sad Man website.

CFA Wellbeing Consultant Naomi Engelke said due to the current circumstances we’ll had to more the screening online.

“We would love to be able to get together and watch this movie, but due to the current circumstances we are inviting you to screen the film at home at a time that suits you and then join us for a Q&A so we can get together and talk about it.

“This invitation is open to all CFA volunteers and staff as well as family members of CFA members.

“If you would like to forward this invitation onto your CFA colleagues please feel free to do so, we hope to see you all there!”
