Life in Mind, an initiative of Everymind, empowers information and knowledge exchange to increase communication between stakeholders within the Australian suicide prevention sector and we are looking forward to continuing this with Brendan and Movember.”

The new role sees Mr Maher leading Movember’s international suite of mental health and suicide prevention programs.
