Mens Wellbeing Inc is a community of “men supporting men”.
Mens Wellbeing formed in Queensland in 1998, although our history goes further back. We believe that building stronger communities of men makes a unique contribution to improving the wellbeing of individual men and in turn strengthens the families and communities those men belong to.
We are an Incorporated Association and Registered Charity, meaning we are a non-profit, membership based organisation governed by a Management Committee elected by an annual meeting of the members. Membership supports the Association in two important ways:
Membership costs $44 per year! Membership is annual, and expires on the anniversary of your joining date. When you attend our Manshine, Manhood or Menergy Gatherings you have the option of renewing your membership (at no extra cost) through the booking process. Otherwise, existing members are contacted by email in the month before their membership is due to expire. To confirm your membership status, email the firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1300 13 88 50.
Credit card processing is by Stripe.
Our Management Committee is elected at our AGM by our members.
Common Ground Program
I learnt what being a man really is, I don’t judge others and I respect their beliefs, this has changed my outlook on life.
Being from the country and now living in the city I found things quite different (and difficult) at times. Common ground has helped me understand myself and taught me to be much more open, a great experience and highly recommendable.
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.
Common Ground showed me how to be real. No more attempting to be "normal."
