Men's Health

The Men’s Health team consists of a team leader and two advanced health workers with over 35 combined years of experience in health and social emotional wellbeing.

Men's Groups

Your local Men’s Group provides a safe and welcoming environment for men to talk and interact about a variety of topics that are of interest to you and the men in your community.

If your community does not have a Men’s Group talk to your local Health Worker about starting one. There may be other men who would enjoy the chance to meet regularly too.

Social and Emotional Wellbeing programs

The Men’s Health team provide programs to help support men in our communities.

These programs include:

  • Men’s Groups
  • Substance Misuse Sessions
  • Domestic and Family Violence Education and Awareness
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Mental Health First Aid
  • Campfire Yarning
  • On Country Camps
  • Night Clinics
  • Elders Groups

Health Checks

The best action you can take for your health is to have an annual Health Check. It is usually a 45 minute appointment with a health worker, nurse or doctor. Time is taken to make sure you are comfortable and at ease.

Health Checks include:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • BMI (Body Mass Index)
  • Blood Pressure
  • Pulse
  • BSL (Blood Sugar Level)
  • Urine and blood testing
  • Vision and Hearing
  • General Health
  • Abdominal Examination
  • Skin check
  • Prostate examination/ testicular self - examination
  • Social and emotional wellbeing

Men’s business and men’s health screens are usually organised through your local men’s group, to help with any specifically male problems or issues.

Fathers, Grandfathers and Uncles

If you are thinking of being a dad or you are already a dad there are programs that provide education and support to assist you in understanding and engaging in your child’s life.

Apunipima believes the man’s role as a father is as important as all of the other family members and can contribute the most to a good stable and happy home for children to grow up strong in body and mind. Our men have always been the “protector and warrior” for our women and children.

Understanding that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders have extended families and primary care givers also extended to other males in the family circle, we have programs to provide assistance and support.

Some of the programs are:

  • Core of Life program for young men
  • Triple P Program
  • Father /Protector awareness session
