Emotional Wellbeing

Men sat talking about their emotions
Men and emotions

Our emotional state often dictates how we behave. Men often feel they need to be self-reliant and provide for their loved ones, so it is not appropriate to express their emotions. Here MensLine Australia challenges that notion offering advice on how you can talk about your emotions openly and freely.

Managing anger

Anger is a basic human emotion and feeling angry is OK. It is how we respond to and express that anger that can cause problems. Expressing anger in an abusive, violent or negative way is unacceptable. Here MensLine Australia discusses how you can learn to manage anger in a way that acknowledges the feeling while not harming anyone else.
