Men Engaging New Strategies (MENS) Program

The MENS program is for men who have hurt or abused their partners or ex-partners.

The Men Engaging New Strategies (MENS) Program is designed for men who have hurt or abused their partners or ex-partners and are ready to take responsibility for their behaviour. The program is specifically for men who are perpetrators of low-to-medium risk family violence.

The main aim of the program is to ensure women and children are safe from harm and abuse. Current or former partners of the participants are provided with information regarding the MENS program and can provide feedback about their ex-partner or partner’s progress.

This program is delivered by a skilled team of practitioners who help men to respond to situations and challenges. Our practitioners have extensive experience and qualifications in social work, psychology, counselling or community work and provide individual counselling sessions throughout the program as well as some group work.

Referrals into this free 20-24 week program can be made by self-referral, or via the courts, police, or other service providers.

Relationships Australia Tasmania is funded to deliver this service through the Tasmanian Government’s Safe Home, Safe Families: Tasmania’s Family Violence Action Plan 2015-2020.
