Men have a suicide rate three times greater than women.
That's why it is important to recognise the positive value men bring to the world, their families and communities.
This Thursday, November 19 is International Men's Day and Goulburn PCYC will host a celebration led by Mission Australia SE NSW and ACT area manager Daniel Strickland.
Prior to a barbecue at 6pm, Mr Strickland will also lead a special man walk from shortly after 5pm which is a chance for men to get together to walk, talk and support each other in a regular and healthy way.
The Goulburn Man Walk also begins at 6am every Tuesday from Marsden Weir.
The original man walk was held in Kiama about a year ago when physiotherapist Mark Burns began walking each weekday morning around Kiama Harbour.
Mr Strickland hoped there would be a decent turnout.
"Men's day draws attention to the health challenges of men and boys," Mr Strickland said.
"The day is also a chance to highlight and promote positive male role models, not just sporting and celebrities but normal everyday men.
"I encourage our local men to come together and join me and many others this International Men's Day."
