“B.R.A.V.E. is an invaluable project, unafraid to tackle the sensitive issue of male violence head on. B.R.A.V.E. tackles stigma and taboo by opening them up to discussion and breaking down barriers which help perpetuate violent behaviours. In doing so B.R.A.V.E. helps men understand and control their anger / rage. By supporting men to stop their violent behaviours B.R.A.V.E.’s work not only impacts on the mental health and wellbeing of its immediate client group, it also helps protect partners and family members, promoting a safe home life where violent behaviour is unacceptable. In fostering this approach B.R.A.V.E. is not only an investment in the men who attend group meetings but also their families and generations to come.”
