Initiatives and programs
We're working on a range of policy initiatives, programs and campaigns to help improve your health and the health of all Australians.
Men’s sheds are community-based, non-commercial organisations that are open to all men. Men’s sheds improve the health and wellbeing of their members by giving them a safe place to make friends, share meaningful activities, talk, and access health information and resources.
The NSDP makes sure that all men’s sheds in Australia have access to a wide range of resources and support for their particular shed.
The Australian Government will ensure that all men’s sheds in Australia have access to an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
Regional coordinators provide support to men’s sheds in each state and territory in Australia to support men’s access to health information and resources to improve their wellbeing.
The Million Minds Mental Health Research Mission aims to support a million Australians with mental health issues access new approaches to prevention, diagnosis, treatment and recovery. The Medical Research Future Fund is providing $125 million over 10 years from 2018–19 for this mission.
