Unpredictable Beautiful Emotional Confusing Challenging
Committed to helping men strengthen their lives
We care about men and are committed to supporting their mental health and relationships so they can transform their pain and live more connected, healthy and purposeful lives.
Following years of research and hundreds of interviews and conversations with men, the Men & initiative was launched with the support of community and organizations aligned with our mission of improving lives and helping others. Through our website resources and content pillars, we are connecting with men across Alberta and Canada who are looking for help to improve their mental health and relationships.

What is Men &
Men & offers trusted, accessible support, information and resources for the complex mental and relational health challenges men face.
We knew the world didn’t need just another website, so we gathered our most respected colleagues, experts and visionaries and started designing Men &.
Men & is:
- an invitation for men to heal, grow and be their best for themselves, their families and their communities.
- a movement of people mainstreaming a more helpful conversation on men, for men.
- committed to supporting men’s mental, relational and emotional wellbeing and reducing the harm men cause to themselves and others
- a digital resource offering engaging content, tools and strategies and partnering with a 24-hour chat and Mensline to make sure that men can find whatever level of information and support the way they want – anytime they want.
- a network of qualified agencies, professionals and support.
- a community of compassionate, wise and skilled professionals, community members and advisors.
We believe that nobody should feel alone in their pain and looking for help should not carry the risk of further judgment. Support for the complex challenges of men’s mental and relational health should be trustworthy, easy to find, and accessible.
We understand what it is like to feel like you are seen as the problem or to feel like your own hurt has caused harm to those you love. We know what it’s like to feel alone in your pain and not know where to start. So, after decades of supporting men, we pulled together information and experts from all backgrounds and experiences to build trusted resources and a network of men’s community-based services that support healing and wellbeing.
We make it easy for you to read, watch and listen to engaging, trustworthy content and connect with resources, support and community to keep you on the right path. In addition to continually providing great content, we are ready to talk when you are and connect you with people in your area who are working towards healthy ways of being a man.
