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.
Check out our events that might help you to start or continue to look after your mental health.
Where no man walks alone.
Mentoring Men is a registered Australian charity providing free long-term one-to-one life mentoring programs for men Australia wide. We focus on a proactive approach, engaging with Australian men who need help before they spiral into crisis.
We welcome all men to engage with our mentoring programs and strive to be as diverse as the communities we serve and work within. Currently our Mentors collectively speak over 57 languages.
Our mission is to support men in their life journey.
We do this by providing free one-to-one mentoring through non-judgemental support, encouragement and a listening ear.
Our screened and qualified volunteer male Mentors are professionally trained to focus on the needs of the individual and to accept men as they are.
“Being a Mentor has helped my relationships at home. I’ve stopped trying to fix everyone and now ask a lot of questions instead. Even my teen lad is actually talking now!”

How do I sign up?
What training have Mentors completed?
All Mentoring Men Mentors have successfully completed a Mentor Training Workshop.
What attitude should Mentoring Men Mentees have when they start the program?
It is important that mentees who engage in the Mentoring Men program commit themselves to the program. This includes a willingness to meet the requirements of the mentoring relationship agreement, having a genuine desire to set and achieve their goals and having an open mind to consider changing their thinking and behaviour.
What sort of men are accepted into the Mentoring Men program?
All men 18 or over regardless of their background or beliefs are welcome to apply for the Mentoring Men program.
Please note that while all our Mentoring Men Mentors are trained and dedicated volunteers, in some cases men applying for our program may need professional support and will be referred to other agencies.
How do Mentors and Mentees communicate with each other?
It is normal for a Mentor and Mentee to exchange personal mobile numbers and/or email addresses. It needs to be understood that the purpose of exchanging this information is to organise and confirm mentoring catch-ups rather than as a medium for continual incidental communication in-between meetings or after the Mentor relationship has ceased.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of country throughout Australia and acknowledge their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respects to the people, the cultures and the Elders past, present and emerging.
