Mens Wellbeing Inc is a community of “men supporting men”.

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!

  • I was looking for more depth & guts to interactions with men (something more that conversations rotating around Booze, Sport, & degrading Women). Common ground provided that depth & more, helping me to being honest with myself. The first time in 50 years I've felt fully heard & also been fully present for others. I now have many solid Men friends from all walks of life, good men.

  • I'm on the Common Ground course right now. It's been life changing already and we're only in week 4.

  • After completing the Common Ground Program in 2009, I found that I now had a group of men that shared I level of trust with that I had not experienced previously. I also gained a Brother, and to this day, that man is my best mate. Thank you to Men's Wellbeing for providing this Program, and in particular, thank you to the 4 men who Facilitated and Lead our group through the process.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Paul, Brisbane
  • 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.
