Between 2012 and 2014 Beyond Blue implemented the Beyond Barriers Strategy to encourage men to take action against anxiety and depression through reducing barriers to seeking support.
The Healthy Dads project aims to support the mental health of men during the transition to fatherhood.
Social connectedness program
This program aims to demonstrate how depression, anxiety and suicide can be prevented through early interventions targeted at enhancing social connectedness for men and pioneer a preventative, wellbeing-focused approach to mental health interventions.
Operating between July 2014 and December 2016 the New Roots project promoted good mental health of males recently settled in Australia through a humanitarian visa from the Arabic, Farsi-Dari and Tamil speaking communities.
Reducing stigma in men
This project is focusing on commissioning research into reducing the stigma attached to depression and anxiety in men.
