As November is also known as Movember, the Congress Arrurlenge (History Project) wanted to share some deadly mo’s from the past.
Pictured above is John Liddle (JL) talking at a rally sometime in the 90s. JL was Director (CEO) at the time and now heads up Ingkintja, our Male Health Service.

Movember Australia has been raising money for projects and research while also increasing awareness about Men’s Health since 2003, specifically mental health suicide prevention and prostate and testicular cancer. Congress, and particularly Ingkintja, strive to make real change for the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal men and their communities to close the gap. This includes promoting connection to community and culture, and strengthening the identities of men.
Ingkintja services and programs include a clinic, men’s shed, wash and laundry facilities, a gym and Jaila Wanti – a prison program supporting Aboriginal prisoners both pre and post release. Ingkintja is located at 19 Gap Road and can be contacted on 8958 4567.
