What is The Fly Program?

The Fly Program was founded through the fires of loss, pain, and passion.

In the winter of 2013 our family received news that our beautiful brother; son, and uncle had taken his life.

The heartbreak and pain of losing a loved one is always difficult. Losing a loved one in these circumstances is profoundly impossible to comprehend. The weeks and months passed as we slowly learnt to deal with the raw nature of the pain, but the questions would never end.

Although we couldn’t always find the answers, we recognised there was an enormous opportunity to make a difference for others. What eventuated is The Fly Program.

The Fly Program addresses:

  • depression,

It’s core is built around four key components Explore, Cast, Discover, and Recover. By facilitating unique programs and awareness campaigns that focus on education and peer support.

The Fly Program is a registered charity with a purpose to empower and support Australian men through life’s challenges, in the natural world, which takes an adventure therapy approach to offer men impacted by mental health adversity opportunities to:

  • Strengthen mental wellbeing
  • Access tools and resources
