Chief Minister Michael Gunner

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. 

Thank you to my Sponsors

Sending some love to the Honorable Mr. Gunner and our Aussie brothers and sisters from the Golden State of California. We love you guys. Please look past all of the insurrection and hate stoked by mentally unstable reality TV stars and know that real Americans still love Australia and the democratic rule of law. Also, thanks so much for that spectacular smack down of Ted Cruz (such a moron). Your cause and the haircut are AWESOME! Keep up the good work and stay safe

Terrific your on board for this cause Chief, mental health illness affects too many across our Top End communities, we keep reminding ourselves how lucky we are to escape the detrimental impacts of covid so far, but for our young people and adults who are experiencing mental health each and every day, the numbers are way too high and more needs to be done for them, grow a mullet for them!

Hello Mr. Gunner, firstly I want to acknowledge your efforts in making Northern Territory safe and secure by your excellent management skills. Your passion for serving Territory community reflects in your positive decisions. I have been living in Territory for more than 3 years and patiently waiting for my PR from Department of home affirs. Their processing time is 14 to 17 months and it has been more than 15 month since 9 June 2020 I have filed my application but they have not got back after Sep 2020 when they asked additional documents and I provided it to them. I am sharing it with you because I consider you as my mentor and family member, your guidance on time to time given to Territory people has helped. I have been donating to Smith Family a part of my income so that indeginous children can get education. But now I. In a fix situation because my son will be charged international fee of 30,000 per annum next year when he will be ready for university. I who has been thinking of education of indeginous children will now have to tell my son to not to take university for a while if PR is delayed. Sorry for sharing it, however, I thought of sharing it with you.

Nice one Mr Gunner, excellent cause and even more excellent takedown of the sharp-as-a-marble Mr Cruz. Care to share some thoughts on the UK’s equally moronic PM? Best of luck!
