We are a not-for-profit organisation working to support men and their loved ones by providing places and programs where men can find themselves and become better men.
You can attend a wide range of events, ranging from Men’s Weekend Gatherings to one-day events. Men’s events occur throughout south east Queensland and interstate. To see what events are scheduled in your area, please visit our Event Calendar.
Mens Wellbeing ‘flagship’ program is Common Ground. Common Ground is a 9-week facilitated course that offers a powerful way for men to explore the issues and challenges and have the conversations that they need to have.
We offer Men’s Groups throughout south-east Queensland and Victoria, usually held fortnightly. Open Men's Groups are free to attend and no booking is necessary. We also offer opportunities to access closed men's groups.
Within our community, men from a wide range of backgrounds get to connect and forge new friendships. Join our Facebook group and stay connected with what’s happening in the men’s wellbeing community.
Mens Wellbeing was founded 25 years ago as Men’s Health and Wellbeing Association of Queensland. From humble beginnings we have now grown into an active community of more than 2,000 men, primarily in South-East Queensland but our reach has extended to Northern NSW, Victoria and Tasmania.
Mens Wellbeing is a totally self-funded and not-for-profit community incorporated association with charitable endorsement from the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission. Many men in our community volunteer their time to support Mens Wellbeing and the organisation is steered by an elected management committee of volunteers and employs part-time staff. You can support us with a Tax Deductible Donation!
Mens Wellbeing is proud to have Steve Biddulph AM as our patron. Steve is a world-recognised family psychologist and author of best-selling books including Manhood, Raising Boys, Raising Girls, Stories of Manhood and The Secret Life of Men.
We offer an open-hearted welcome without judgement and the opportunity to self-explore how to become a better man in a safe and confidential environment with other men who share similar challenges and aspirations. For more information, please explore our website, follow our Facebook page to stay informed of our latest events and courses, or contact us.
I'm still thankful for being part of a group after 8 years. So glad there's more to manliness than beer and sports.
Common Ground has given me more understanding of why I do this things I do in my life. It has help me with my integrity and given me a platform to share my life experiences/challenges with other men. I found the program hugely therapeutic and would recommend it to other young men.
I found Common Ground at a difficult time in my life, struggling with the prospect of becoming a father for the first time, I reached out online and found Men's Wellbeing I am so glad I did. I now have a beautiful 14 year old daughter, and I'm a great dad.
The nine week Common Ground process had a profound effect on my life. It gave me deep connection with other men, healed my wounds with my father and helped me to see the "stories" and belief systems which had been programmed into me which I allowed to run my life. The facilitation was excellent with three facilitators for twenty men. Being delivered over nine weeks gave time for strong bonds to be welded between us. We still meet weekly after 2 and a half years.
I despised myself and continually berated myself. Common Ground showed me I was OK as I am. A truly supportive bunch of good men helped me believe it.
I completed a Common Ground course in 2006 and through this I discovered that I was not alone, that fallibility is OK and that we all have more in common than we can possibly imagine.
