An updated Blokes’ Book has been launched today providing a directory of services, contacts, support groups and current information for men.
This resource was developed by Men’s Resources Tasmania, a community-based, volunteer-run, not-for-profit organisation which supports and promotes the health and wellbeing of men and boys.
It contributes a male voice to community conversations and public sector policy, particularly around social, health and wellbeing issues relevant to men, and particularly at this time as we address the challenges of COVID-19.
The book aims to provide support and guidance for Tasmanian men and boys who need it, especially at times of emotional distress.
The health, safety and wellbeing of Tasmanians is a key focus for the Tasmanian Government, which is why we have introduced a number of measures to help support Tasmanians during COVID-19.
Further support is available if you feel like you or a loved one are not coping, including:
For more immediate support for people experiencing significant mental health problems, our Mental Health Services Helpline is available 24/7 on 1800 332 388, and in an emergency call triple zero.
