Details

Description

M.A.N. the peak body for service providers, organisations and individuals concerned with men’s health, well-being and other issues affecting males of all ages in Western Australia. It is a not-for-profit non-government organisation that receives financial support from the Department of Health.

The primary role that M.A.N. plays is resourcing the sector through supporting service providers, organisations and professionals from various disciplines, who work with males of all ages. In addition, M.A.N. provides information to individuals about appropriate services and professionals, plus provides general community education and raises awareness of the issues affecting males of all ages.

The aim of M.A.N. is to raise awareness of issues impacting on males of all ages and to advocate on their behalf in order to promote their health and well-being in a holistic sense covering physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual components. This is based on the World Health Organisation's 1986 definition of health and encompasses all aspects of a person's life.

The primary role that M.A.N. plays is resourcing the sector through supporting service providers, organisations and professionals from various disciplines, who work with males of all ages. In addition M.A.N. refers individuals to the most appropriate services, plus provides general community education and raises awareness of the issues affecting males of all ages.

In 2002, M.A.N. received funding from the Department of Health to investigate the options for establishing and maintaining a viable network for community based men's groups in Western Australia. The rationale for this funding may be found in the government's election commitments contained in the Men's Health Direction Statement.
