The Alberta Men’s Collaborative was born out of the need for those working in the area of men’s wellness to collaborate and share best practices. There is a lot of amazing work being done for men’s mental health, unfortunately, much of it is being done in silos. We plan to change that.
To actively explore, consolidate, and promote evidence-informed best and promising practices that support the health and well-being of those who identify as men.
Our vision is a world where those who identify as men feel safe to integrate versions of masculinity that build on the strengths of traditional values while allowing for a full expression of all parts of themselves.
To the Alberta Men’s Collaborative, Compassion is Empathy in action. We value identifying and understanding the feelings and perspectives of all communities, with a commitment to collaboratively facilitate positive and healthy change.
