Men’s Health Peer Education Program has commenced meeting at the RSL East Victoria Park as of today 22nd August 2012.
They will meet fortnightly with informative sessions from guest speakers and organisations. The group has been operating from High Wycombe for some time and is now branching out to assist more people within the community.
The MHPE was established over ten years ago for war veterans and ex servicemen and is a national initiative supported by the Australian Government and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Health is a subject that is often pushed to the back of the queue by men, particularly in the veterans community, and this is why it is so important to get men talking about their wellbeing in the same way that most women do.
