We want to connect 100,000 men looking for support with the 100,000 men who can give it to them
On average, 100,000 men will suffer from mental health challenges like loneliness, anxiety and depression every year in Australia.
But with the early intervention of a mentor, these challenges can be prevented from escalating into full blown mental health crises.
Someone who’s there to listen to their problems, to support them when the going gets tough. Who’s there for the long haul.
At Mentoring Men, we want every one of these 100,000 men to have their own mentor.
YOU DONT HAVE TO DO IT ALONE
Get a Mentor
Luke Skywalker had Yoda & Harry Potter had Dumbledore – mentors that helped them overcome challenges and obstacles so they could flourish and get to where they wanted to be in their lives.
Now you might not need to destroy a Death Star or overcome an evil nemesis like Voldemort, but 1 in every 2 Australian men will experience tough mental health times in their life, and need a bit of extra support and advice.
At Mentoring Men, we offer FREE one-to-one mentoring support. Someone’s who is there to listen without judgement, in total confidentiality and for the long haul… not just a couple of weeks.
Our Mentors come from all walks of life; storemen, managers, bankers, drivers, retirees, tradies, students, between jobs – you name it. So we’re sure there’s one that’s going to be perfect for you.
YOUR LIFE EXPERIENCE CAN HELP ANOTHER MAN
Become a Mentor
Luke Skywalker had Yoda & Harry Potter had Dumbledore – mentors whose knowledge and experience was invaluable in helping them overcome challenges and obstacles, and get them to where they wanted to be in their lives.
Now you probably don’t know any magic spells or how to use The Force but the knowledge and experience you do have (and I bet you take for granted!) is sure to be incredibly valuable to some of the 100,000 men in Australia who are struggling in their lives.
Our Mentors come from all walks of life; storemen, managers, bankers, drivers, retirees, tradies, students, between jobs – you name it. And thanks to their mentoring, they have helped to turn the lives of other men around for the better.
And becoming a volunteer Mentor can have a profoundly positive impact not just on the man you are supporting but also on you.
THERE’S MORE THAN ONE WAY YOU CAN HELP A MAN WHO IS STRUGGLING
Become a Mentoring Men Supporter
At Mentoring Men our goal is to connect the 100,000 Australian men who will need mental health support in their lives ever year, with 100,000 men who can give it to them.
Our one-to-one long-term life mentoring program is Free but we need your financial help to make sure we can continue to run our programs and support more men across all communities in Australia.
