Men’s Health Week 2017
‘It’s all about him’ this week for Men’s Health Week, and this year men are being asked “How are you doing?”.
If the answer is ‘not very well’, then it’s time to take some action and make positive changes.
Each year the 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.
Not just for men
Everyone is involved in taking care of and minding men’s health.
This includes health professionals, sporting clubs, along with family and friends of any man. So, pretty much everybody then!
Physical and mental health
It’s really important for men to take care of their wellbeing.
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.
Have a look at the Men’s Health Forum website for details of the manual and events that are on around the country this week.
