Men’s Information and Support Association (MISA) is a not-for-profit community organisation that provides counselling and support services as well as information and referral services, for all men, women, families, and children in the community. Since its inception in 1997 in Strathpine , MISA has provided a safe and supportive environment where men can express themselves with confidence and security.
Who We Help
While specialising in working respectfully with men in the community, MISA regards the contribution of women, families, friends and children as important and endeavours to include all parties in the healing and development process.
How We Help
Counselling sessions are available for individuals, couples, children, and families. MISA offers workshops to manage issues of emotion regulation and individual and couple parenting sessions. MISA can provide referrals to other service providers for needs relating to accommodation, family court, and other legal matters, gambling and mental health concerns.
MISA is partially funded by the Department of Social Services Family and Relationships Services as part of The Department’s Stronger Outcomes for Families Initiative. This allows MISA to keep fees for counselling to a minimum. MISA can offer counselling sessions for $50 per one hour session and negotiate fees for those in Financial Hardship. MISA will ensure that all people have access to quality counselling services despite their financial position. Couples sessions are charged at $70 per one hour session.
