To fully understand the significant challenges the Community Services sector (Illawarra/Shoalhaven/Southern NSW) is currently facing, Community Industry Groupis conducting a ‘Temperature Check’ (key issue survey) to find out what issues are most concerning to you/your organisation/community and what supports may be needed.
Men’s Tables are forming in communities throughout Australia. Come and join men just like you at a local Table.
Our vision is Healthy Men, Healthy Masculinities, Healthy Communities.
It’s healthy to show emotion and share feelings. Yet for many men in their relationships with other blokes, the talk is mostly about ‘footy and sh*t’.
Many men look for a greater sense of belonging and connection.
The Men’s Table is a safe place to share and be heard in a confidential and non-judgemental environment. Men learn to listen, talk, share openly and how to serve other men, modelling healthy versions of masculinity.
Join our growing grassroots community
There’s never been a better time to belong in a community – the Men’s Table enables adult men to meet on a monthly basis with the same group of men to share a meal and talk openly about their feelings, and the highs and lows that are impacting their lives and well-being.
It’s a local grass roots activity and membership is free. Your commitment is to attend a minimum of 9 monthly meetings per year and your outlay is just the cost of a meal and a drink.
Come to an ‘entree’ to find out how The Men’s Table works and see if it’s for you.
The Australian Men’s Health Forum, in partnership with Suicide Prevention Australia, is developing a statewide online resource for men at risk of suicide.
You don’t have to work directly in male suicide prevention to get involved. Your work could be dealing with some of the factors that can increased men’s risk of suicide. You may be promoting social connection in men or supporting dads at different stages of their fatherhood journey. You could be working with unemployed men, or men living with disabilities or long-term health conditions.
Maybe you provide support to Indigenous men or Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Men or males who identify as GBTI+; or maybe you work with men at different stages of life, like younger men or older men.
Put simply, if you’re based in New South Wales and you work to improve the lives and health of men and boys, we want to hear from you.
As a first step, an online information event was held in December 2021, to let you know more about this project and how it could benefit your work.
If you weren’t able to attend this event but would like to register your interest in this project, please email us at email@example.com with the words “NSW Male Suicide Project” in the subject line.
The Man Walk Australia is a not-for-profit association which promotes and supports men’s physical, social and mental wellbeing.
The Man Walk is a simple concept designed to strengthen communities, build social capital and combat isolation. We do this by connecting men to walk, talk and support in a positive and inclusive environment. There is no judgement, pressure or expectations. Simply turn up when you feel like it, walk with a group of like-minded blokes, and be a part of The Man Walk community.
