The aim of this study was to identiy the factors that have helped rural men to move through adversity. A total of ten men from Queensland took part in the study. Participants shared their experiences through in-depth, unstructured interviews. The participants shared a diverse range of difficulties in their lives, but on analysis it become apparent that there were similarities in how the participants overcame those difficult times. Two major themes identified in the study were: the individual and inner strength and support and strategies.
