If you’re already involved in a group, this is a great gift to give another man, bring a mate into our groups and have him experience the support and compassion that other men can offer.
Our O&OMGs are co-ordinated by Dob. You can call him with specific questions on 0424 146 005.
Our Open Men’s Groups have moved online to become Online Open Men’s Groups (OOMGs).
During these uncertain and challenging times, you can now jump online for the opportunity to connect with good men, to talk and listen in a healthy environment and perhaps ease some stress and anxiety.
To access the OOMGs simply click on the relevant link below. OOMGs are open to any man, no previous experience is necessary, no need to book in, no cost involved, just log in online at the allocated time! Newcomers are most welcome.
We have named the different OOMG meetings listed below by the geographical location of where the respective facilitators reside. However, with the wonders of being online you can attend any and multiple “locations” that suit you.
The Online Open Men’s Group replicates a traditional Open Men’s Group circle, but with the convenience of being in an online format. Therefore, we respectfully ask that you are fully present (no distractions or interruptions), drug and alcohol free and stay ‘in circle’ (online) until the men’s group has concluded.
The Online Open Men’s Groups are not suitable for participation on a mobile phone. Quite simply, the screen is not big enough, you can’t see the other participants properly and holding or balancing a phone for two hours is too hard. Please join on a device with a good-sized screen (a PC or a tablet). You need to plan to be in a quiet, private place, having earphones/headphones available can help in this regard.
If this is your first time using Zoom, please make sure that well before the joining time, you have loaded Zoom onto your PC and tested your microphone and speaker. The Zoom website https://zoom.us/download has instructions on how to do this (it’s not difficult, but it is necessary!).
