In the media, film, television and among role models in the community, there is a lack of people who identify with diverse genders and sexualities. LGBTIQA+ people that are represented in our community can also be limited to certain stereotypes. This can result in negative feelings and confusion about a young person's own identity if they don’t feel they are represented.

Nathan Hindmarsh knows how awkward it can be for someone to talk about their personal issues. He also understands that it may seem difficult, or even scary, for teenagers and young men to talk about what's going on in their heads, let alone reach out for help. That's why Nathan is encouraging dads to start conversations with their sons, just like he is with his young boys. Take a look at the...

"The bloke is a myth and peak blokeyness is, in turn, unattainable. The qualities that Australian men are conditioned to aspire to—being easy-going, brave, assertive—and what we are conditioned to expect from them is a convenient polyp of jingoism designed to excuse our national shortcomings"

Patrick from VICE Australia shares his experiences with mental health and Aussie men.

Sometimes it's easy to forget that there is a process that links our thoughts and emotions. The way we feel isn’t always directly connected to an event or the behaviour of those around us. When something happens, our own perspective determines how we feel and then how we react.

This Sunday 18 June at 7pm AEST, we're hosting an online group chat for young people on the connections between...

#menshealthweek is upon us and headspace is supporting this year's theme, HEALTHY BODY – HEALTHY MIND: KEEPING THE BALANCE. It's so important to stay on top of our mental and physical health, especially when it's busy and there's a lot going on in our daily lives.

It’s also important to reach out and offer support to someone if you know they're struggling. Only 13% of young men seek out...

For far too long, young men have stayed silent about their worries or concerns. One of the most valuable things a dad can do to support a young person who might be struggling is to start a conversation and let them know it is okay to talk.

headspace has designed a set of tools and tips to help dads support their sons through mental health challenges. If you're a dad who has concerns about a...

For far too long, young men have stayed silent and may be unwilling to open up about their worries or concerns to anyone, including those closest to them. Similarly, a lot of dads also find it difficult to talk to their sons in a supportive way that feels comfortable.

With this in mind, we would like to welcome dads to take this opportunity to speak anonymously online to our team of mental...
