The Awards take place on the eve of the WA Men’s Wellbeing Conference 2024, now in its second year. The Conference is also organised by Mens Talk Au, which is fast becoming one of the biggest grassroots champions of men's health in the West as its supporters build community through various activities that get blokes talking, connecting, and staying fit—typically on and around Scarborough’s beautiful city beaches..

The theme for this year’s daylong Conference is Nurturing Men’s Mental Wellbeing, with guest speakers including:

Dr Bruce Robinson – Founder of the Fathering Project
2024 marks the 11th year since Dr Robinson formed the Fathering Project to allow Dads to be the best parents they can be so their children can thrive.

With a unique perspective from law enforcement, Mechelle Turvey shares valuable insights into the mental health challenges faced by men in high-stress professions.
