How do men navigate current times? Beautiful Stories of Modern Men.Real conversations.Real Answers.

    Episode18: Vulnerability as a Superpower - Mentoring Men & The 25twoZERO Movement

    Episode18: Vulnerability as a Superpower - Mentoring Men & The 25twoZERO Movement

    Mentoring Men is a registered Australian charity providing free life mentoring programs for adult men in the community.  The brain child of Ian Westmoreland who had the idea to provide a service to  to help adult men experiencing distress.  
    When Ian found himself at a crossroads, he was unable to find a place to connect to other men for mentoring  or a new sense of direction.  This set him on a mission to create this incredible free one on one “life” mentoring service, providing valuable, solid assistance to help men to adjust and transition through difficult times to a better and normal quality of life.

    Joining the conversation is Shay Hare, a mentor at the non-profit organisation and the inspiring creator of The 25twoZERO Movement.  Shay himself faced a huge shift in his own life and was moved to take action after the suicide of a co-worker.After a period of hard questions and seeking his own truth through vulnerability,  Shay set up the 25twoZERO Movement and has set himself the goal to run 2,520 km this year. Each kilometre ran will represent every male that loses their battle each year.  Shay’s campaign goal is to increase awareness, change the way males talk about their mental health and raise funds to help reduce the number of men in crisis from over 2,500 to ZERO.
    It is my pleasure to hold this conversation with these 2 inspiring men, providing such valuable services for men in distress.

    Episode 17: Scratching the Surface: A Personal Reflection on Suicide

    If you have a family member suffering from depression and you are worried, or friends you know are not doing so well, this chat with Jamie Gray is a must listen.  
    Jamie's candid discussion around suicide and mental health is both personal and moving, after the loss of a close friend 4 years ago,  Jamie and his community was devastated to think they didn't have the skills to help him.  
    So over the last few years Jamie has immersed himself in the Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Spaces to find out what we really should know about this important social crisis and indeed - How do we help someone who is suffering with mental health issues?
     Jamie is currently working on an education program titled Scratch the Surface, shining a light on these important topics, hoping to reach as many people as he can to help them understand and maybe, hopefully, save a life.

    It is such a pleasure to share with you the wisdom of Henry Johnstone.  Henry is a Rapid Change Therapist from the UK, who overcame a 15 year journey of alcohol addiction which almost took his life.  Sobering up after 15 years he underwent an amazing transformation into the man he is today.  
    Henry's incredible ability to share and his deep and moving insights into the role of the hero and "being manly" are such food for thought.

    Episode 14: In a World of Tech, Porn & Single Parenting - How do we Raise Healthy Boys?

    In this episode I am thrilled to share the wisdom and experience of Andrew Lines, the amazing mind and creator behind "The Rite Journey", an incredible resource offered to schools to "Transform Todays Teens".  
    Andrew discusses some of the many issues faced by parents, acknowledging the immense impact of the internet, social media and the difference this has made to what our children face on a day to day basis.  Andrew chats about how his program addresses the communication between girls and boys, how to embrace important conversations and discuss emotions, how to talk about the "uncomfortable" things and how to connect in a world bombarded by screens.
    Established in 1997, Andrew's mission has never been more needed than it is today.  The Rite Journey provides unique educational programs in schools and organisations designed to support the development of self-aware, responsible, respectful, resilient and resourceful adults.
    It is my pleasure to have had this conversation, I so enjoyed it and I am sure you will too.

    Episode 13: Clerical Child Abuse, The Impact, The Recovery, The Royal Commission with Peter Blenkiron

    Episode 13: Clerical Child Abuse, The Impact, The Recovery, The Royal Commission with Peter Blenkiron

    During the 1960s and 1970s, a notorious paedophile ring preyed on children in the regional Victorian city of Ballarat, my guest today, Peter Blenkiron was abused by one of these Christian Brothers when he was 11 years old.
    In this conversation we chat about the affects not just on Peter, but on the community as a whole.  Ballarat has an increased suicide rate of 30% over the rest of Australia and unfortunately the news that another man has taken their life is way too familiar.  This conversation is grounded, honest and moving.  Honouring the depth of mental health and the traits that can cover it, Peter shares how it was nearly 30 years before he allowed the truth to come forward and how it felt when many many others came bravely forward to share the truth that it had happened to them too.
    Peter became the voice of his community during the Royal Commission, even flying over to Rome to stand on the steps of the Vatican to be heard and seek justice.  Much love to this community.
    Should you feel affected either by this podcast or any other challenges at this time, please reach out knowing that you matter.

Amazing Show!

In a sea of podcasts by men talking about being a man, here comes a vastly different twist from a woman. Helen Glover takes on the concept of what it means to be masculine in today’s world. The fact that this issue is tackled by a woman makes Helen’s show more authentic as men open up to her well thought out questions. Her calm and introspective style with her guests pulls the listener in gently as she discusses masculinity and the role it plays in society today. All around a podcast you’ve got to subscribe to!
