The Regional Men’s Health Initiative Strategic Alliances
The Regional Men’s Health Initiative (RMHI) has continued to expand during the past eighteen months. A growing demand from regional WA for the educational programs, and other unique measures that RMHI provides, has highlighted the need to build closer connections to local communities.
The intent of the RMHI program is to support and enhance existing services by working collaboratively. The aim is to provide opportunities for men to better understand and connect with established health and wellbeing organizations in their local area.
RMHI has established working relationships with a number of agencies in rural and remote WA and has now taken this to the next level by creating Strategic Alliances that will enhance program delivery and health and wellbeing outcomes for men.
Strategic Alliances have been established with;
• Midwest Men’s Health, 130A Flores Rd, Geraldton 6530 WA, Ph: (08) 9921 8512
• Men’s Outreach Services Kimberley, 11 Hamersely St, Broome 6725 WA, Ph: (08) 9192 2767
These Strategic Alliances will allow for sharing of resources, co-branding of some publications and joint promotion and delivery of programs like “Fast Track Pit Stop”. The Strategic Alliance partners will also act as agents for RMHI by promoting the program to local groups with the view to RMHI community education sessions taking place.
By working in this collaborative way each agency retains its unique area of specific focus without duplicating services. It also allows for the sharing of ideas and improved collegiate support and professional development.
