Research indicates that adherence to damaging gender stereotypes is the biggest predictor of men reporting poor levels of mental health, engaging in risky behaviour or using violence.

On 1 December, Jesuit Social Services (JSS) hosted Unpacking the Man Box. The session unpacked the pressures men and boys face, and explored how we can actively promote men’s health and wellbeing while learning more about the roles respect and equality can play in our relationships, homes and community. We’re now in the process of identifying engaged and passionate community members to establish the next phase of this unique program.
