Melbourne’s population is just under 4.5 million, 49% (!?) are blokes, Men & Boys, mostly trying to make a “better” world for themselves AND others.
Here is a group of roughly a dozen men who meet up on a voluntary level to glean from a passionate professional… including a passionate “sister” of a brother who died from suicide.
This is inspiring and encouraging… check it out for yourself OR for someone you know!

Peta Kerryn statement:
I lost my brother to suicide which made me realize the lack of support for men’s mental health. We are trying to build a brotherhood to help put an end to men suffering in silence. Men who do not know one another coming together to build a brotherhood. Hosted by myself and a trained family therapist/drug and alcohol counsellor wanting to put a stop to men suffering in silence…
