We're a bush not-for-profit going upstream to change and save lives through our #OK2SAYNO campaign, straight talk, national advocacy, and our national online platform for mates. 

social impact

Every day we are creating connection, community, and social impact across the rural space (and further afield) by sharing lived experience, real talk, information and education via our various socials which are today reaching up to 100,000 people. We are amplifying the message that it's OK2SAYNO every day.


What began as one woman, a vision, and 15,000 hours as a volunteer advocate is now an established, credible, national advocacy platform for social change in the bush. SITC is driving unprecedented awareness and change in the rural space nationally. We are the ''go to'' voice for lived experience nationally and we're doing what ''they'' said could never be done.

peer support

SITC is 'home' for a group of hundreds of working rural and regional Australians in our recently launched Bush Tribe; an online website we developed and launched to ensure those taking part in discussions could be ensured total privacy if that was necessary. This is a safe, friendly, non-judgemental space where members can have an anonymous username and be comfortable.


Shanna Whan calls herself an accidental and unlikely public personality. Yet she's now recognised nationally for her straight talk and raw authentic style of advocacy via truth that comes simply from lived experience as a rural person in the rural space. Something she knows is terribly lacking for a very overlooked demographic. She travels on invitation - please visit the Bookings section.
