"THE FAITH - O LE FA'ATUATUA"
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. (Hebrew 11:1)
A'o le faatuatua, o le faalagolago lea i mea ua faamoemoe i ai, o le mautinoa lea o mea e lē o vaaia. Auā ona o lea na ta'u leleiaina ai o ē anamua. O le faatuatua ua tatou iloa ai na faia mea uma i le afioga a le Atua; na faia foi mea ua vaaia i mea ua lē aliali mai. (Eperu 11:1-3)
Faifeau Tausinuu & A'oa'o Fesoasoani ma o latou Faletua

We came across a video circulating online of a young Pasifika boy crying writing “time to go back in the dark” and instead of taking that chance of asking how he was, people ridiculed him for crying, making jokes and writing that he should keep it to himself.
In Australia, June 14th - June 20th 2021 is where we acknowledge and spread awareness for Men’s mental health which is something that should be done daily. Everyday in Australia, approximately seven men die by suicide. On average, one in eight men will experience depression and one in five men will experience anxiety at some stage of their lives.
Mental health is not a joke. Because of how society portrays what a “masculine” boy/man must act like, they are far less likely to ask for help. Our community tends to fear talking about these low moments so in response, let’s create a space of openness, understanding and love for our men.
