This is intended to be completed by male or male identified persons who are 18 years of age or older and living in Alberta. This survey asks questions about what helps men feel good about themselves, as well as what leaves men feeling angry, frustrated, or upset. Some questions are about families, partners, spouses, or dating relationships. This survey was created by over 50 men and 10 women who are concerned about men's well-being, healthy relationships and violence prevention. The purpose of this survey is to learn about different strategies that can help men have healthy and positive relationships where there is no violence or abuse. We want to know more about the types of people and services that can support men, so that we can strengthen our communities, work together, and provide these supports for men. It will take approximately 15 minutes to complete this survey. This work is supported through funding provided by United Way of Calgary and Area, the Alberta Human Rights, Education, and Multiculturalism Fund and The Calgary Foundation to the Ethno-Cultural Council of Calgary.
It is our hope that this survey will benefit men by assisting community agencies, leaders and researchers gain a better understanding of men’s strengths and challenges when it comes to personal well-being (feeling good about themselves) and the services and supports that will help men with personal well-being, increase their ability to have happy and healthy relationships with others and also help prevent domestic violence from taking place. We want to understand the unique needs, perspectives, and strengths of diverse men who from come different backgrounds so that supports and services can be inclusive of all men.
