TOP BLOKES FOUNDATION
Top Blokes Foundation is on a mission to improve young male health and wellbeing. We work with groups of boys and young men over 3 to 6 months to increase their resilience, empathy, and respect for self and others, and in doing so work to reduce the rates of suicides, mental health issues, and antisocial and risk-taking behaviours.
THE MAN WALK
The man walk provides an opportunity for men to get together to walk, talk and support each other in a regular and healthy way.
The Man Walk provides an environment that is positive, supportive and inclusive, where there is no pressure and no barriers to entry. Just an opportunity to walk, talk and support! We want to make it ok to talk, and we want to make it ok for men to ask for help if they need it.
