“Mind Moto uses a trusted environment and existing knowledge to facilitate understanding, discussion, and new learning around better mental health and mindset practices,” Jeff says.
“It is expected that the program will not only provide a higher level of understanding of motorcycling, making better riders, but provide a platform for deeper comprehension of cognitive processes and outcomes, creating healthier minds.”
Participants will not only learn practical tools for maintaining and riding their bike, but also to improve relationships, social connection and life-satisfaction.
Jeff says this will, in turn, minimise feelings of loneliness and isolation in the male motorcycling community.
The pilot program is targeted at male motorcyclists aged 30-49 years which is statistically the most at-risk group from both suicide and motorcycle crash fatalities.
“Improving the mental health and motorcycle skills for this age group will have the most benefit for male motorcyclists and the greatest potential impact for the pilot program,” Jeff says.
