MENDS Fundraiser Invitation





MENDS Now Australia (MNA) Inc. has been incorporated as a not-for-profit entity and will be systematically assuming management of theMENDS program. This is an exciting opportunity to transition MENDS to a national (and progressively international) stage for the group and Internet program formats, thereby offering the proven benefits to many more clients. Several initiatives have already commenced and will include further training, marketing and managerial changes. This will involve a systematic transition of the National 1300  363361 telephone line, website, and day-to-day operations to a Committee of Management. No significant disruption to the existing services should occur. Program graduates and all persons on our existing database will be regularly contacted to offer timely updates and notice of opportunities as they arise.




Yours faithfully,


MNA Inc. Committee


Owen Pershouse - Chairman
Catherine Burchill - Vice-chair
Joseph Crowley - Secretary
Margaret Martin - Tresurer
Tony Christie - Committee member 



Men Exploring New Directional Strategies (MENDS) is a 12-week program designed to address men’s needs during or after separation or significant relationship change.

It is a practical program based on commonly accepted psychology principles, covering topics around separation, including

* emotional issues

* physical and health effects

* rights and responsibilities


It is often thought that problems (and solutions) during separation are exclusively legal. While it does play a part, MENDS recognises the wider concerns men may experience. 


Held in small group sessions of 10 – 12 men, participants also find friendship and positive association with other men going through a similar experience to themselves.
