Our October Men's Program is scheduled for next Thursday October 11 from 7 to 9pm.
Last month’s guest speaker was unable to attend our September Men’s program. However he has readily agreed to attend our October Men’s program instead. I am therefore writing to invite you to come and listen to Terry talk about Men and Masculinity (see information below) next Thursday October 11 from 7 to 9pm.
Introducing our October Men’s Program Guest Speaker, Terry Melvin
Member of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency
Member of the Australian Men’s Health Forum
Former Vice President of Male Health Victoria
Terry has a long history as a counsellor and psychologist working in a variety of different settings. Over the last 25 years he has worked exclusively with men in both clinical and service management roles. Before moving to Phillip Island, where he established a private psychology practice, he worked as senior psychologist and coordinator of Health and Wellbeing at the Gippsland Campus of Monash University. Prior to this he established and managed Mensline Australia, the national telephone counselling, information and referral service for men dealing with family and relationship concerns.
He has also worked as a corporate consultant and trainer with the National Centre for Gender & Cultural Diversity at Swinburne University of Technology, where he worked in largely masculine cultures and the impact of these work environments on men.
He has also worked for many years in the field of men’s family violence both as a clinician and program manager. At this time he also managed a national three year Research and Intervention Project, looking at best practice issues for delivering intervention programs for men and their families in a relationship-counselling context. Currently he is closing his private practice and pursuing his interest in photography and film making.
At our October Men’s Program Terry will talk about men and masculinity and the influence of gender roles on men’s mental health. If you are interested in attending our October Men’s Program, please call Support After Suicide on 9421 7640 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
