Happy Fathers' Day

Message contains a hyperlink

To all the fathers in our community, happy Fathers’ Day! We hope you have a special weekend with family and the important people in your lives. 


Fathers play a vital role in the lives of their children, being role models and sources of support. We see the love and dedication of dads supporting and raising their teens and commend them for all of their hard work.


Fathers’ Day can also be a tough day for families and dads, whether it’s remembering a father or child who has passed, being away from loved ones, or any other factors unique to your experience. We want to acknowledge all the dads who may be feeling the impact of Fathers’ Day this weekend, and let you know that you’re not alone.

If you’re a father looking for support, Mensline is a free telephone and online counselling service available anywhere within Australia. They also offer a range of articles for dads and fathers. Finally, our forums are a safe space for fathers from all walks of life to post their experiences. We encourage you to start a post to share what’s on your mind with our community.
