'Just opens up a whole new possibility of change': A review of the Men's Exploring New Directions online program
This Report presents the findings of a review conducted by members of the Monash Gender and Family Violence Prevention Centre in 2022-23 of the Men Exploring New Directions (MEND) online pilot program funded by No to Violence and developed by the Men and Family Centre. MEND is a 20-week online MBCP for men in rural, regional and remote areas. The program’s online format aims to ensure that MBCPs are accessible to people in rural, regional and remote areas who may not have access to in-person programs, which are typically located in metropolitan areas. While the program provider (MFC) is based in NSW, as an online program, participants can attend from across Australia. The review examined the delivery of the MEND online program. A mixed methods design was adopted.
