Blokepedia was started as a blog site in January 2017 by Josh Quarmby with the aim of getting men talking about issues and topics that impact their lives, from mental and physical health through to relationships.
What originally started as a simple blog quickly grew into a unique mix of online and face to face resources for men, including regular events.
In early 2018 Josh invited Dr. Clive Williams, a highly experienced psychologist, to speak at one of Blokepedia’s ‘Conversations that Matter’ events. From here the two struck-up a friendship, with Clive mentoring and supporting Josh to develop workshops and online resources aimed at providing men with tools and supports to enhance their emotional health and wellbeing.
In 2019 Clive joined Blokepedia as a Director.
As the co-Directors of Blokepedia, Josh and Clive are passionate about improving the lives of Australian men. Their approach combines expertise in clinical psychology, training facilitation, HR consultation, and community engagement.
