MensLine Australia is a telephone and online counselling service offering support for Australian men anywhere, anytime. We provide single session services to all callers and online counselling users; and multi-session services to eligible clients.

In a single session, each interaction is treated as a stand-alone counselling session where we work with the caller on the issue that is of greatest concern to them. Our multi-session service is a tailored program for clients where they can have up to four sessions with the same counsellor. Case Coordination supports clients who present as having unmet needs and require ongoing support to connect with services in their area over a four to six-week period.
