How can I help? What can I do?
- Purchase 5, 10 or 20 A5 Mesh Injured Australia Inc awareness flyers and distribute them. Cost includes postage so that the flyers won’t get bent in the mail.
All orders are posted within 24 hours of payment.
- Print off flyers and distribute them
Click on the green button to download the flyer and print. Cut it in half and distribute them wherever women and men visit or congregate e.g. public toilets, medical centres and facilities, community health centres, rotary clubs, newsletters, probus, senior citizens, , friends, family, sporting complexes, cafes, health food shops, supermarket noticeboards etc. Please make sure you have permission (where you think necessary). This is a simple and easy way to help.
- Volunteer for 1800 National Help Line email your interest to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Volunteer to be included in the next round of 1800 MESHED telephone training course. We have a number of guidelines which have to be strictly followed, and volunteers will need access to their own mobile phone with unlimited calls to mobiles and landlines (in Australia). Successful volunteers will be rostered as per your availability, booked in advance.
- Tell your story
Write your story! Provide your story, a photograph (if you are happy to appear on our website and/or public facebook group) to educate others and let them know they are not alone! Please email: email@example.com
- Peer Support / Buddy System – project currently under development – if you have time and want to support a mesh injured person who is new to the journey please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
We suggest you have stabilised your own mesh injury as best as you are able before you reach out to others <3
- Join a consumer steering committee in your state or territory and have a consumer voice in the co-design of facilities for mesh injured Australians.
Health consumer organisations state wide offer consumer representative training that can equip us to be an educated consumer voice and support us to advocate for ourselves and loved ones through a medical disaster.
