New initiative helps men’s sector connect

Does your work include a focus on improving the lives and health of men and boys? Do you volunteer in a role with a focus on supporting men or boys? Would you be interested in networking with others to make new connections and share your experiences?

If so, the Australian Men’s Health Forum is piloting a short series of “Men’s Sector Connector” events that bring together people working and volunteering in men’s health. 

You can register your interest in attending these online events today by taking part in our Men’s Sector Connector survey.

What is the Men’s Sector?

AMHF takes a holistic view of men’s health and defines the men’s sector as any individual or organisation working to improve the lives and health of men and boys. 

Clearly nurses or doctors specialising in male health issues, or psychologists focused on men’s mental health, have a shared interest in men’s health. 

The same is true of people focused on the broader social issues that can impact men’s wellbeing. These include boys’ education, our experiences of fatherhood, male rites of passage, male friendship and social connections, men in relationships, men’s working lives and male experiences of unemployment, homelessness and the criminal justice system. 

If you are working or volunteering in areas like these, then you are working to improve men’s lives and men’s health and you are part of the men and boys’ sector. 

If you’d like to come along and take part in one of our Men’s Sector Connector events, please take a few moments to complete our Men’s Sector Connector survey.

Calling professionals working with men and boys 

If you’re a health professional who works with men or boys, or if you work with men/boys in a related sector such as social care, we’d love to hear from you.

We’re currently reviewing our Working With Men newsletter and events, which focus on Best Practice approaches to working with men. To help us do this, we’d like to find out more about your professional interest in men's health.
