Mullets For Mental Health 2021

Science. Compassion. Action

I'm all ears for Black Dog Institute's Mullets for Mental Health. 

1 in 5 of us will experience symptoms of mental illness in any given year. In Australia that’s around 5 million people. And roughly 60% of these people won’t seek help.

For the month of September I will be sporting a mullet and raising funds to show support for mental health research.

Please donate and support my mullet and empower everyone in Australia to look after their mental health.

Poem for you, from me.

Thursday 8th Jul

Overwhelmed with bitterness,

Seemingly adrift in a lonely sea. 

The only comfort is stillness,

When the mind is totally eased. 


Distractions are a vacation amid despair. 

Desperation apparent and beyond compare.

Immersed in a life that seems unfair, 

Consuming all peril and halting repair. 


Ultimate destruction seemingly inevitable. 

Dark motives almost completely questionable. 

Projecting fears that are thoroughly irritable. 

Begin taking action; wholesome and measurable. 


Processes may be cumbersome,

Lessons may seem burdensome,

Responsibility could become irksome: 

In turn, life will be preserved some.  


Bare the weight upon strong shoulders. 

Lifted hearts and minds rejoice!

Swallow all pride, reject the poisonous:

Give a graceful soul its voice. 


Value concentration on the exceptional. 

Note the remarkably phenomenal. 

Awareness will set perceptions free. 

Awaken to the reality of reactions diabolical. 


Growth from darkness leads to the light. 

Realising downfall empowers the fight. 

Searching within reveals deeper humanity:

Discovering enlightenment the eventuality. 


  • Big Farmer Andy 💙



For all the people going through a hard time. A reminder that despite the hardships of life, all can be overcome. A positive attitude makes a difference. Grab the bull by the horns, be the better person that you can be, and give life a go. Be the person who always says and does the right thing at the right time. Yearn for it. Grow.
