Mibbinbah, a safe space to find your voice

Health Issues
Issue 109 (Winter 2012)

Abstract: Everyone needs to have a space where they can feel safe and have a yarn. The concept of safe friendly spaces is not a new; it has been around for generations and generations among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Mibbinbah, which means 'men's place' from the Yugambeh language of South Eastern Queensland, is a part of this cultural heritage. It is an Indigenous male health promotion charity, which follows the lead of such inspirational Aboriginal men such as Dr Mick Adams, Dr Mark Wenitong and Frank Spry.
