NO MORE Supporter "Uncle Mick" wins Men's Health Hero Award
Dr Mick Adams (Uncle Mick) took out the Local Men’s Health Hero Award in the 2020 Australian Men's Health Forum - Men’s Health Awards in recognition of his 30 years involvement improving the lives and health of Indigenous men and boys.
In a newspaper article highlighting the importance of encouraging men to have a yarn to create more tightly knit communities he mentions NO MORE as evidence of Indigenous men being given a voice. High praise indeed from a respected Territorian who is well known nationally for the great work he has done and will continue to do.
In the article Mick said the NO MORE anti domestic violence campaign was a sign strategies of collaboration were encouraging Indigenous men to speak out about systemic problems. "Men feel more comfortable about addressing those issues. Men want to work with women and women want to work with men."
Congratulations Mick on your award and thank you always for your support of NO MORE.
