Our founder, Jum Lamont recently sat down with For Men, a not-for-profit organisation that aims to proactively develop individuals mental health and wellbeing through self-leadership.
Jum openly talks about what he has learned about himself and what led him to establish Jump Start Communications and what continues to drive him in what he does.
In relation to the video, Jum says ‘Men aren't always the greatest at starting conversations about life's challenges. By sharing my own story - I am hoping it can make things a little easier.’
In Australia, one man between the age of 16 and 45 commits suicide every 4 hours. It's the leading cause of death for men in this cohort and it's happening at a rate of 3:1 when compared to women.
For Men is a not-for-profit organisation which exists to help bring this number to zero. The approach to doing this is through proactively developing grit, resilience and mental health in this cohort of men through skill building workshops, events and a strong sense of community.
Jump Start Communications is really proud to be involved with For Men.
We encourage you to check out the video and let us know what you think.
