The MENDS program aims to reduce anxiety and depression, as well as contain anger and enhance client self-judgments and senses of wellbeing by providing valid and practical information, along with effective methods of self-auditing, planning and progress evaluation. The 12-week program adopts a structured, psycho-educational, and multidisciplinary forum for clients to address areas of psychological wellbeing, physical health, legal/social issues, and relationships. Importantly, the MENDS program focuses on the male experience of key transition issues occurring during separation or relationship crisis, in order to help participants develop a personal and practical ‘map and compass’.
