Who are TasMen?
Welcome to this site, and thanks for taking the time to search for us. We are TasMen, or the Tasmanian Men's Health and Wellbeing Association. This site has lots to offer so dig around, hunt it down, join our membership, email us or pick up the phone and call.
We are a community organisation based in Tasmania. Formed as an Association in 1999, and run by volunteers, TasMen is self-funded and independent. Our purpose is to strengthen our wider communities by supporting and promoting the mental health and wellbeing of men. We do this by providing safe, non-judgemental places where men can share, learn, be challenged and develop deeper personal understanding, friendships and wider networks. In this work, we also like to partner with other organisations who can support and build on what we do. Check out our 'Partners' tab.
TasMen offers a number of events, programs and services. These include; the 8 week 'Common Ground' men’s program, our annual 'Men’s Gathering' in March, our Open Men's Groups, our active online support services and our networks within similar Australian mens organisations across Australia. We believe in men supporting men over the long term, in providing and holding a safe space for men to share and witness at a deep level, and to provide men with opportunites to learn, grow and challenge what it really means to be a man in the 21st Century.
TasMen welcomes all men of good intent - we don't care about your faith, colour, orientation, or background. As an Association we are not aligned to any ideology, creed or political persuasion. Only you will know when the time is right for you, to dig deep, and to explore what it means to really be a man.
Our work comes with a 'health warning', beware, it could change your life. If you want to know more or talk to an ordinary bloke who is part of our TasMen community, contact us
