‘It’s all about him’ for Men’s Health Week 2017

This year for Men’s Health Week it’s all about him, and men are being asked “How are you doing?”.

If the answer is ‘not very well’, then it’s time to make a positive change.

Each year Men’s Health Week has three goals:

  • Raise awareness of preventable health issues
  • Enable men and boys to live healthier lifestyles
  • Encourage early detection and treatment of health issues.

For all the family

No man is an island, so everyone has a role to play in minding men’s health.

This includes health professionals, sporting clubs, along with family and friends of any man. So, pretty much everybody then!

Try to encourage a regular “how are you doing?” in your family.

Physical and mental health

Men’s wellbeing and physical health are very closely linked and both need continuous maintenance.

Healthier lifestyles, monitoring, detection and treatment will go a long way to preventing premature death in men.

How can I get involved?

The Men’s Health Forum have put together a manual to help men (and others) look after their wellbeing.

From alcohol to healthy eating, the manual outlines easy actions and where to find more information.

The Men’s Health Forum website for details of the manual and events that are on around the country this week.

Get in the habit of checking in with each other as a family.
