Bunnings Trade and Supercars have teamed with Men's Talk as the official charity for this year’s Bunnings Trade Perth SuperNight.

Men's Talk will be the official charity for this weekend's event at Wanneroo Raceway.

The not-for-profit organisation is aimed at mainstreaming the conversation around wellness and masculinity for all who identify as male.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ (ABS) National Health Survey, one in five Australians reported a mental or behavioural condition between 2017 and 2018.

Males aged 4-17 are the age group most likely to experience mental health issues.

Men's Talk will host a stall at the Perth circuit this weekend, offering information about its community activities and merchandise.

The mental health charity will also run its 'Mental Wellbeing Challenge' for attendees, with a chance to win mystery prizes.

Men's Talk President Paul Litwin said he was delighted to be working alongside Bunnings Trade and Supercars to raise awareness for men's mental health.

"The main purpose for Men's Talk is to mainstream conversation around mental health and wellbeing in men of all ages," Litwin told Supercars.com.


"Having the capacity to go to Supercars in Perth, where a lot of men and women will be attending, there is an opportunity to combine the love of Supercars and have conversations around your wellbeing.

"Rather than having to go to a clinic or to a doctor, this is a more effective and natural connection with your wellbeing rather than being pushed to go somewhere you don't really want to go to.

"We find that the conversations we have at the Bunnings stores and what we anticipate will we have at the Supercars over the weekend, are going provide the opportunity for a lot of men and women to be having those important discussions."

Men's Talk hosts open space sessions and regular video podcasts to encourage men of all backgrounds to share and connect around wellness and masculinity.

All proceeds from donations go towards bringing men of all backgrounds together through a range of interactive events within the community. CLICK HERE to donate to Men's Talk.

The Repco Supercars Championship field will return to Wanneroo Raceway for the Bunnings Trade Perth SuperNight across April 30 – May 1.

Tickets for the Bunnings Trade Perth SuperNight are on sale through Supercars.com and Ticketek.

The event is being broadcast exclusively live and ad free on Foxtel and streamed live on Kayo.
