Men and Online Support

The act of drawing on available social resources is a strategy that brings emotional and practical support to men who seek help. Previous research on men's help seeking has placed focus on mental health, physical health, and relationship breakdown. 

Seeking Online Support















We are currently undertaking research in the area of men seeking help and support online within the context of relationship breakdown.

Our primary areas of exploration in this area are:

  • What barriers do men face when seeking help and support during relationship breakdown?
  • Why do men choose to seek help online during this process?
