Free help for men’s health

MEN can improve their health for free, with Tablelands Regional Council collaborating with Men’s Health Advisory Service to deliver a free men’s health and wellbeing program across the region.

“The ‘Life Wasn’t Meant to be Easy’ program is a free all-abilities health and wellbeing program targeting older men,” Mayor Rod Marti said.

“This program equips men with essential life skills, fosters positive health impacts through camaraderie, addresses the impacts of social isolation and identifies support resources.

“We’ll reduce the stigma around men’s mental and physical health and provide a safe space to openly talk and learn about issues that men face.

“As a council, we’re committed to delivering our Age-Friendly Strategy 2022–27 and offering opportunities for social engagement to older Tableland men.”

The program will runs from 10am-2pm Fridays on 12 April at Merriland Hall Atherton; 26 April at Yungaburra Community Hall, 10 May at the Patrick English Pavilion, Malanda Showgrounds, 24 May at the Herberton Hall, and on 7 June at the Ravenshoe Town Hall. Register at
