passionate about improving the lives of Australian men
How it all started
Established in January 2017 as a simple blog site, Blokepedia set out with a very simple vision – to promote and encourage conversation around the issues and topics that impact the lives of Australian men.
Within a short time, Blokepedia was running events and workshops, alongside a range of online resources.
With the Blokepedia gaining traction, Blokepedia enlisted the support of leading health professionals, working together with them on projects and initiatives that aim to address improved health outcomes of Australian men.
The simple blog quickly grew, largely driven by feedback from the community; men, and their families looking for more opportunities to connect, discuss some of the key health issues and life events that affect men, and identify effective strategies to address life’s challenges and lead healthier lifestyles.
Today, Blokepedia continues to provide a unique mix of online and face-to-face resources for the community, as well as working with businesses to deliver an inclusive range of solutions that support the health and wellbeing of individuals and teams.

In a society where so many men struggle to speak up when times are tough, a forum like Blokepedia is providing a sounding board that can save lives. An incredible organisation and one I’m proud to say I am a part of.

Enjoyed hearing from knowledgeable, personable, and honest experts who spoke openly about their own journeys and learnings – a great resource and opportunity for the ACT Emergency Services Agency to learn more, grow and recognise the importance of men’s health.

Mental and social health and wellbeing are important for everyone, regardless of gender. Blokepedia provides a forum for conversations that matter to support the men in our lives and I applaud Josh’s efforts in providing these events. I had the privilege to speak at a Blokepedia event in August 2018. There was a good turn out of people engaged in how to better support their fathers, brothers, partners, sons, and friends, asking great questions and keen to learn from the experience of the speakers. I recommend Blokepedia to anyone interested in making a difference in mental and social health, and to all organisations seeking to improve wellbeing in their workplace and the broader community.
