WORK OUT: The Secret Men's Business group push through a training session.

A BLUE-TIE event supporting a program that helps men battle depression will be at Bendigo Town Hall on June 21.

The Secret Men's Business Celebratory Dinner is a three-course meal with guest speaker and charity auctions to be held on the night.

Secret Men's Business is a program designed by Human Mechanics director Arj Perera.

The program is run in conjunction with beyondblue and sees men who are battling depression get active in the gym with other men. 

It aims to create a safe and comfortable space for men to catch up and network.

"The idea is for guys to get together without it being a discussion group," Mr Perera said.

"I want to change the stigma (of talking about depression) and let guys have another way to network.

"So instead of brooding on their own, they see 20 other guys twice a week and can catch up with them for a beer."

More than 10 gyms between Bendigo and Melbourne run Secret Men's Business sessions each week.

Participants pay what they think is reasonable for each session, starting from $10.
