Our one-to one life mentoring program is free and we need your help to make sure we can continue to run our programs and support more men and in turn their families across all communities in Australia.
We need to continue to talk about our mental health, but we also need to act. That action can start by making a promise to yourself to look after your mental health.
Why we do it
- On average, 9 people in Australia take their own lives every day. 7 of whom are men
- 1 in 8 men are likely to experience depression in their lifetime
- 1 in 5 men are likely to experience anxiety in their lifetime
- 45% of men will experience mental health challenges
What we do
Every man needs a listening ear from time to time.
Mentoring Men is a registered Australian charity providing free long-term one-to-one life mentoring for men who are going through some challenges or changes in their life.
The idea that early intervention can prevent a problem escalating into crisis is firmly at the heart of what we do.
Make a donation
If you share our vision to help support Australian men who need help before they spiral into crisis, we would really appreciate your support.
Acknowledgement of Country
In the spirit of reconciliation, Mentoring Men acknowledges the Traditional Owners and Custodians of country throughout Australia and their continuing connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to the people, the cultures and the Elders past, present and emerging. We extend that respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Acknowledgement of Lived Experience
We also acknowledge the individual and collective expertise of those with a living or lived experience of mental health, alcohol and other drug issues. We recognise their vital contribution at all levels and value the courage of those who share this unique perspective for the purpose of learning and growing together to achieve better outcomes for all.
