Monthly Men’s Group Meeting
The MIJ program offers monthly meetings of like-minded men with a view to building community and friendship through sharing our life issues. The group provides a place where you can:
- be safe to share feelings and viewpoints
- lessen isolation
- build friendships
- speak openly and honestly
We meet with the goal of creating a safe space to be ourselves and raise issues we face as men – all issues are open for discussion. Each man presents his own issues, and what feedback, if any, he wants from the group.
The group makes a point of not trying to ‘fix’ anyone. Confidentiality is assured – a meeting rule/agreement is that anything discussed in the ‘talking circle’ stays within the room.
There are no pre-requisites for joining the meetings they are open to anyone who wishes to participate.
