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 went to Common Ground to help me get through my divorce. It also gave me a whole new world where I can deeply understand myself and from there consciously create a wonderful life I didn't know even existed.
Common Ground showed me how to be real. No more attempting to be "normal."
The Common Ground program changed my life, it helped me become the man I am today.
Common ground gave me a greater sense of myself and a greater awareness of my emotions and how to express them. It gave me a boost in confidence also and more skills to be assertive in relationships and my communications in life.
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.
I did not show up to Common Ground broken in crisis or stuck, I came to make connections with like minded men. I have a simple formula: before CG and my involvement with Mens Welbeing my funeral would of been a sad affair with very few attending, now I’m certain there will be many men there celebrating our achievements together and honouring my passing.
