Men's Health #menshealthweek

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.
