Tough Guy Book Club

This innovative men's mental health program has been supporting the health and wellbeing of men for over 6 years through the vibrant and genuine sense of community connectedness and belonging it cultivates among the many hundreds of men who are TGBC members. As a woman who has been watching from the sidelines, I am hugely grateful for the supportive culture this program provides men in my life and in the wider community. I have seen first-hand men reaching out to each other to support and be supported during tough times, pitching in to help a member move house, dropping off a care package to a member in hospital who might not have otherwise had visitors, checking in someone who hasn't turned up to club after a divorce. There are also the preventative interventions the program runs such as reminding and encouraging members to get health check-ups in ways that are engaging and get guys to actually go to see their GP - not an easy task!

    I agree. Tough guy book club is a great nomination . It is a great way to have men talking about health ,emotions in a supportive life enhancing way. I really think an award is in order so as to publicise and extend the work

    I totally agree with this nomination. I’ve been impressed by the way that the club has spread organically with chapters across Australia, all through the determination and commitment of its core team and new members.

    The ability to welcome in people of all interests and backgrounds, to come together in creating a safe space for communication and support is amazing. It would be the best if the organisation was able to secure some funding and support as part of its continued growth and development.

    Can’t stress enough that tough guy book club gave me the ability to be truly honest about who I am for the first time. I credit it with the success of my current relationship and my current contented ness and sense of purpose. Can’t thank these guys enough

    Well said Natalie. Tough Guy Book Club has become such a tight knit community of men helping each other, I sometimes forget to read the monthly book!
