Men's support group
Come and join us for a friendly and supportive chat group for men.
Join an open and safe discussion each week about the things that matter to you.
In our current modern world, there is a lot of expectation and assumptions about what it means to be a man and a lot of advice about how to be a man.
There are comparisons and assumptions about what a real man is as opposed to an unreal or weak man.
Come and join our weekly support group as we discuss the things that matter to us.
This is a non-judgemental group where we invite men to share their concerns, be heard and listened to.
Where: Reginald Murphy Community Centre
19 Greenknowe Avenue, Potts Point
When: Tuesdays, 6pm to 7.15pm
Now until Tuesday 17 December 2019
