The Region­al Mens Health Ini­tia­tive — 10/06/2021

Wheat­belt Mens Health Inc. is a not for prof­it organ­i­sa­tion formed to raise aware­ness of men’s well­be­ing across the whole of region­al, rur­al and remote WA. Since July 2010 WMH has been deliv­er­ing The Region­al Men’s Health Ini­tia­tive. The Region­al Men’s Health Ini­tia­tive is made up of a team of peo­ple who are pas­sion­ate about rais­ing aware­ness of men’s health and well­be­ing in region­al, rur­al and remote com­mu­ni­ties through­out West­ern Aus­tralia. They are not a health organ­i­sa­tion, rather, they act as a bridge of sup­port and edu­ca­tion to men, local com­mu­ni­ties and health ser­vices. They engage with men on their terms and go to where the blokes are.
