Every day, MensLine Australia supports men across the country to manage their emotions and work towards practical solutions to their problems. 

Here are just a few of the men we’ve helped recently: 

“I just wanted to congratulate and thank you for the wonderful job that you are doing.  In recent times my wife and I have separated and I have turned to your helpline a couple of times for support and have always finished up in a better place. Keep up the great work.”

“I can never say enough about how wonderful and extremely useful this service is for all men in Australia.  Each and every time I use your services, I feel energized and positive about life, my relationship and people in general. Please do whatever you can to continue offering this service as I am sure that you have enhanced the lives of your callers!”

“I just wanted to convey my heartfelt thanks for being there. It's been about 5 years now since I made contact with MensLine Australia for support in the midst of a divorce. It still chokes me up, am in tears at the moment thinking about it.  However, it's now behind me, I am enjoying life, I have a new best friend and most of all ... I am still here for my four sons!”

“I just wanted to say thank you to MensLine Australia for all the support I’ve received from your counsellors in the last month. I’d been having a tough time in my relationship, and found it hard to cope with the arrival of my newborn baby. Now my relationship is on the mend and things have greatly improved. My wife and I are happier and are overcoming our issues.  MensLine Australia saved my relationship. You guys provide an amazing service for men.”

“I used to feel like there were three people in my relationship; my partner, his ex, and me. My partner reached out to MensLine Australia for support and advice on how to deal with issues related to his divorce, including harassment and custody arrangements. You gave him really helpful advice and practical strategies on how to amicably work with his ex towards a common goal. There was no judgement, and being a confidential service really helped him open up. You empowered him to realise he could still be a great partner and a great dad despite all the hurdles he faced.”
