The Men’s Council is unique in its passion for providing men with a strong support network as an outlet for interaction, guidance, help and advice. Men are no longer on their own when dealing with complex issues.

What is a support group?

A support group is a group of 5 to 10 men committed to sharing events of our daily lives, the feelings stirred by those events, and the history behind those feelings.

Support groups are not a saubstitute for therapy, but a place where we can be ourselves. All groups are expected to follow a set of Guidelines established by the Council. The only requirement for joining a support group is a genuine desire to join with other men in supporting each other’s life journeys.

Support Group Guidelines

There may be some delay in placement pending formation of new groups and requests from existing groups to add new members. So you may decide to start a support group on your own. We are always willing to give men counsel on the process. And these guidelines can help you get your own group started and headed toward achieving a rich, meaningful give-and-take that makes the experience positive for all members. Giving and receiving truthful feedback is a skill that takes the individual time to acquire, and the group time to adjust and adapt to.
