What is The Shed Online?
The Shed Online is an online social community for men, founded by beyondblue: the national depression and anxiety initiative, The Movember Foundation and the Australian Men’s Shed Association.
Like the original Men’s Sheds, The Shed Online is a place for men to socialise, network, make friends and share skills. It aims to recreate the atmosphere of “real life” Men Sheds – a safe space where men can feel confident to discuss and exchange information. The Shed Online aims to foster a sense of community and build men’s social networks.
In addition to being a place for men to interact with other men The Shed Online also provides men with information on health and well-being. Good health is based on many factors including feeling good about yourself, being productive and valuable to your community, connecting with friends and maintaining an active body and mind. Becoming a member of The Shed Online gives men a safe environment where they can find many of these things in the spirit of “old-fashioned mateship”.
