What is TasMen?
TasMen is a community organisation based in Tasmania. It was formed as an Association in 1999 and is run by volunteers. We are self-funded and independent. Our purpose is to strengthen our wider communities by supporting and promoting the mental health and wellbeing of all men. We do this by providing safe, non-judgemental places where men can share, learn and develop deep friendships and wider networks.
TasMen offers a number of events 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, to explore what it means to really be a man, to make those friends you never had, and if your not sure whether you should, ask your partner what they think.
Our work comes with a 'health warning', beware, it could change your life.
