ABOUT US

Man Up Tasmania (MUT) is a grassroots men’s mental health organisation founded in 2020 on the North West coast of Tasmania. MUT aims to change the culture and understanding of men’s mental health well-being and will do that through the development and use of programs that all have links to MUT’s core values and an alignment to the MUT ethos “If you give a man a fish, he will eat for a day… However, if you teach a man how to fish, he will eat for a lifetime!” meaning; We will shy away from activities that don’t support a community to grow. Instead, we will focus our efforts on activities that make long-term changes in the community.

Our Vision
By the year 2030 we can see, feel and report on a positive shift in culture and perception of Men's Mental well-being across all of Tasmania. We will help to achieve this vision by;

  • Providing free accessible support to men when they need it. ie: - MUTs' Mates, etc.

  • Through the MUTs’ Mates program, creating a volunteer network helps alleviate the reliance on funded mental health services.

  • Building positive connections with other services with an aim to build a more connected community of Men’s Mental Health support services.

  • Where possible help other men in the community, to embark on their own “grassroots” story. There are ideas out there that just need the support to become something great!

  • By providing various training opportunities and programs, we will create a community of "well-informed mates" 


Our Values
It is important to note that these values were created by a diverse collection of blokes from across the North West Coast community. Although our short-term vision and goals may change, our values will NEVER. These describe who we are, where we've come from, and where we want to be.
