Two men’s mental health hubs open in WA

In an exciting collaboration between Mens Talk Au and the Mental Health Commission of Western Australia, two Katitjin Blue Mind Hubs have opened in Busselton and Scarborough, tailored to meet the unique needs of men living in the community. 

Mens Talk AU CEO Paul Litwin says the initiative will extend far beyond the individuals it serves and represents a huge milestone in men’s mental health in WA.

“Imagine a space where men of all ages and backgrounds can come together, free from judgment, to share their experiences, seek guidance, and find solace,” he writes.

"Imagine a community where mental health is not a hidden issue but a shared responsibility. These hubs represent our belief that every man deserves access to the resources and support necessary for a healthy mind and a fulfilling life.”

Services provided by the Katitjin Blue Mind Hubs include mentoring support groups, wellness workshops, and referral services.

Paul Litwin says the hubs are also about “fostering a culture of openness and support.

“They are about creating a community where men feel empowered to express their emotions, seek help, and support one another. They are about fathers, sons, brothers, and friends standing together, knowing that they are not alone in their journey!”

The 18-month pilot will be monitored by Curtin University, and provide research on how boys and men engage with well-being, including physical health, social connections, and personal development.

“The ripple effect of these hubs will touch every corner of our WA community, strengthening the very fabric of our society,” writes Litwin.

Mens Talk Au is hosting a Community Open Day at the Scarborough Katitjin Blue Mind Hub on 15 June, located at the Stirling Community Centre, Scarborough Beach.

On Friday, 14 June, Mens Talk Au will host the day-long WA Men’s Wellbeing Conference at the Rendezvous Hotel in Scarborough.
