The Men’s Project

The Men’s Project is a non-profit charitable men’s counselling agency that has been providing services to men and their families since 1997.

They provide individual and couple counselling, as well as a specialized healing program for men who have experienced sexual or physical abuse as children, anger management, emotional intelligence and fathering.

Their services are specifically designed for men and professionally facilitated by accredited psychotherapists. We tailor our individual programs to specifically meet men’s needs in a way that speaks to men.

Happy Father’s Day

Sunday, June 15th is Father’s Day. Let’s take this wonderful opportunity to have a closer look at Fathers’ Mental Health. We often avoid speaking openly about mental health issues due to concerns about stigma. We know the stigma of mental health tends to have a unique and more severe impact on men than it does on women. That’s largely due to society’s stereotypes about the male role, having to be strong and tending to repress their feelings and emotions. As a result, many men, including fathers suffer with mental health troubles in silence. On Sunday, when we celebrate the role of the father, let’s also take a minute to speak/post/tweet/raise awareness about mental illness and the impact it can have on fathers and families. Wishing everyone a happy and (mentally) healthy Father’s Day weekend.
