why we do what we do:

the problem:

  • Australia is one of the world's healthiest societies, yet our men and boys die younger; experience more disease and have less access to support services

  • 7 men suicide everyday in Australia (of the 9 suicides per day)

  • situational distress is the major link in male suicide (eg loss of job, separation/ divorce, financial struggles)

  • social isolation (loneliness) is worse than obesity and is as bad for your health as smoking 16 cigarettes a day

  • 1.1 million Aussie men have no close friends (outside of their immediate family), males reach peak loneliness at 35

  • more satisfied life

  • 50% increased longevity

  • strengthens immune system

• maintaining male friendships can improve males life expectancy by 22%

• having 3 close mates is one of the best things men can do for their health and well-being

how we do it:

our events:

  •  we run laid back events for men to connect, hang out and be themselves

  • there isn't much structure or formalities to our events

  • we stand around, mingle, chat have a laugh, have a good time

  • we definitely don't take ourselves too seriously

  • we create a vibe that is fun and relaxed

  • some examples of our events: coffee catch up, bacon and egg bbq breaky, burger nights
