Working with Men

Welcome to Working with Men

This is a platform focused on the health and wellbeing of men in Australia.

Working with Men

Men’s wellbeing and health is a serious issue with ripple effects for everyone. Despite the fact that Australia is one of the world’s healthiest countries, men still have a lower chance of living healthy lives. They suffer from more disease, have less access to support services, and die younger. This is due to various social factors.

Research has shown that in order to improve men’s wellbeing and health, it is essential to address the underlying social issues such as boys’ education, fatherhood experiences, work-life balance, social connections, and access to male-friendly services.

It is all this that the Working with Men provides through a network of organisations and individuals and resources that shape our understanding and help us live better and healthier lives. This platform aims to address the male health crisis, thereby creating a healthier future for boys and men.

COVID-19

The emergence of COVID-19 and its spread has significant effects on every aspect of our lives. This includes the socio-economic aspects and more importantly, the health aspects. With millions of people dead as a result of the virus all over the world, recent research has been looking at the relationship between coronavirus and gender, and there is a lot to see.
