Thanks for asking.
That's the theme for this year, and you can write a note to say thanks on the website. And how are your mates? Ask your good mates "RUOK?"
Beyond Blue Research from 2014, showed that many men want to be more of a support to other men, and want other men to support them. Many men are not sure how to do this. It's as simple as saying RUOK, and then asking again - how are you really mate...? Just listen, and follow your instinct.
if you or your friend want to talk to some professional help, check out the Mr Tasmania website for some direction on where to find assistance. Have a good day!
Common Ground is an 8 week facilitated program that challenge and enable men to build richer, more fulfilling lives. Men of all kinds and ages can join Common Ground groups. They join for their own reasons and may often be encouraged by their partners or friends to come along. Common Ground programs are non religious, down to earth, 'hands on' programs. Within a Common Ground group you will explore the issues, the 'stuff,' and the challenges that are important to you and to most men. It's an awesome 8 weeks, guaranteed.
Common Ground programs are run by ordinary men for men. The benefits may be significant for you, as well as the other men in the group, your partner, your family and even into the wider community.
Common Ground programs will be run in Hobart, Launceston and Devonport commencing in October, 2015, and run for 8 weeks, with one 3 hour session per week.
To find out more, register to attend a free introductory night in late September or early October. This intro night will be for interested men and partners to come and meet the facilitators and check out what’s on offer.
Space is limited as each Common Ground program takes a max of 10 men, and is supported by 2 facilitators.
