G’day, I’m

Connected Kai

I know that strong and supportive relationships are critical for a long and healthy life. I organise a regular date night with my partner, connect with my local dad’s group, and check in with mates who seem a little off lately. I understand that good connection and communication involve opening up, actively listening, and sharing what I’m going through with those I’m closest to.

What are the benefits of getting connected?

Whether it’s support from a mate or seeing a doctor, asking for help is a sign of strength. Connecting and communicating with your community will help you.


How do you become a Connected Kai?

Get up close and personal with these habits for greater connection.

Schedule quality time

Schedule quality time

Life can get busy, but it’s important to carve out time to connect with those closest to you.

Kai's helpful hint

Instead of a one-off coffee with vague promises to catch up again soon, lock in a regular arrangement.

Kai's helpful hint

Contribute to your community

Contribute to your community

Giving back to your community can help you connect with others.

Kai's helpful hint

Volunteer to walk rescue dogs, join local clean-ups, or just ask your neighbours if there’s anything they need a hand with.

Kai's helpful hint

Extend your circle

Extend your circle

Opportunities to meet new people gradually decline as we get older, without school or study to extend our network. We might also be set in our ways regarding our day-to-day habits.

Kai's helpful hint

Think about what your interests are or new hobbies you might like to try and look into what local programs, clubs, classes, or communities are around, like Men’s Sheds.

Kai's helpful hint

Chat with the experts

Chat with the experts

Book a consult with your GP to discuss your health.

Kai's helpful hint

Write down a plan for every visit to get what you want out of your consultation, and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
