It’s time for men to start opening up and talking.
Unlocking You Counselling is a passionate advocate for helping men challenge traditional expectations, get connected and develop the skills to be better friends, husbands, fathers and community members.
As well as its obvious impacts on women, toxic masculinity hurts men. The expectation to be the strong and silent type, never back down from a fight and adopt traditional masculine stereotypes has led to significant men’s mental health issues and a reluctance to ask for help.
At Unlocking You, we want to be part of changing how we talk about being a man.
When it comes to physical fitness, men are often more forgiving. We can brush off a bad workout at the gym knowing that over time, consistent exercise and healthy eating will keep us in shape.
Unlocking You can help get you in the positive and consistent pattern of self-talk and beliefs that will get you mentally and emotionally strong over the long term.
Six men take their lives everyday in Australia and Lifeline estimates that unknown suicide attempts could be as many as 65,000 per year.

Unlocking You is committed to being a leading voice in suicide prevention and support.
