MEN’S HEALTH WEEK JUNE 10 - 16th 2019
An annual awareness event run by Men’s Health Forum. The focus for 2019 is men’s health by numbers.
The Men’s Health Forum aims to raise awareness of men’s heath issues for the public and also policy makers and service providers #menshealthweek. Their message is clear:
One man in five dies before he is old enough to retire. Together, by knowing our numbers, we can change this statistic.
Men’s Health Statistics
Go to Men’s Health Forum to undertake a men’s health quiz and MOT and for more information on stats that could change your life including:
37 - a waist size of 37 inches and above increases risk of diabetes, heart disease and cancer
14 - maximum units of alcohol a week
75% of premature heart disease deaths are male
Making changes to physical health can directly impact on mental health.
Men’s Health every day/week/month
It’s important to remember that men should focus on their physical and mental health all year round. Partners can help to focus attention on issues of concern but ultimately it is the individual’s responsibility to seek help and make changes.
