This year’s focus is on Men’s Health checks and on encouraging men and boys to build healthy habits by identifying small changes they can make that benefit their health and wellbeing.

The City of Brimbank is proud to support the range of activities happening this week, events that include cooking, exercise, social connection, family connection and art across various sites in Brimbank.

These activities are aimed at supporting improved mental wellbeing, healthy eating, active living and physical activity and support economic and social inclusion.

Main event

This year the main event happens on Thursday 13 June at the Westvale Community Centre. Join us in this event to celebrate Men’s Health Week 2024 with guest speaker, Robert Dipierdomenico, a retired AFL player whose 17-year career at Hawthorn made him one of the country’s most notable AFL personalities.

Robert says: “The stigma around mental health and vulnerability amongst males, let alone males in a professional setting, is one that has been outdated for many years. It is an absolute honour that I am able to share my story with Westvale Community Centre and assist in breaking barriers, hopefully encouraging others to be more confident in speaking out too!”
