Blokes United, a new online meet-up aimed at helping men in Melbourne get through the coming weeks of lockdown, starts today, August 13 AEST, at midday.
It’s not exclusively for Melbourne blokes, but the organisers – some high-flying AFL football legends – recognise that those stuck inside, or without an income and facing multiple other stressors, are doing it particularly tough as Australia continues its containment of the coronavirus.
Blokes United is the brainchild of Richard Maloney, founder and CEO of Quality mind, with ambassadors Barry Hall, the former AFL legend, and North Melbourne footballer Shaun Higgins.
There are guest speakers each week including, on the first session, Australian Men’s Health Forum CEO Glen Poole, talking about how we can all take action to prevent male suicide by looking out for the blokes in our lives.
Blokes United will take place every Tuesday and Thursday for an hour from 12.30 pm, starting today, 13 August via ZOOM.
