Tips urged from men beating adversity

SEEKING to empower men, ‘Tackling the Challenge: Talking Men’s Health’ is an initiative that has helped men across the state and is now heading to Bankstown.

By sharing their experiences and stories, the project seeks to give men the tools and strength they never knew they had or needed, to help face adversity.

Mental Wellbeing Health Promotion Officer, Brendan Bennett, says they are collecting men’s stories of recovery or resilience to showcase their help seeking.

“By sharing these stories, we hope it can help other men learn from each other to get through those difficult times,” he said.

“We know that dealing with a personal crisis, recovery or challenge, is not typically spoken about by men.” 

Mr Bennet says that while the style of program has been very successful, issues faced by men in Bankstown will vary and the initiative will reflect this.
