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 Open Men’s Groups throughout south-east Queensland and Victoria, usually held fortnightly. They are free to attend and no booking is necessary. All men are welcome to attend (even if you have never been to a men’s group previously).
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.
Thanks to my Common Ground mates and the support of Mens Wellbeing I went from feeling alone and 'shattered' to a feeling of connected and 'mattered'. I learnt simple skills which have helped me communicate better, given me a sense of community and appreciation of myself.
In Common Ground I learned to connect at a deeper level with men and myself. Out of this experience evolved a Men's Group. I attend every two weeks. It is a source of deep comfort to listen and to be heard by fellow men.
Common Ground Saved my life and My Marriage. A good way I like to explain it is before Common Ground I was watching Black and white TV and then all of a sudden I was watching HD Digital Colour TV - It was amazing. I loved the program and I am evolving always. My Marriage is stronger than ever and my relationships are deep and meaningful. I am also a more present Father which makes me feel amazing.
Common Ground changed my world by showing me that I had choices. The proof of the value of this program is that I am alive today and living a happy life. Without wanting to be dramatic, my only expectation before Common Ground was a bitter death, sooner rather than later. Yet here I am. I know that the key has been the Common Ground program. I recommend it to you.
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'd lost my purpose. Common Ground gave me a way to find it and a group of friends to support me.
