How Are You?
If things aren't right inside your head, it doesn't matter how much you can bench-press, how much you earn or how often you get laid, you won't feel good.
Stress is normal. It's what we do about it that matters. This section of Men's Health Forum lets you read all about the key issues and build resileince at your pace and as you want to. Nothing flash, just the facts in the words of the men who know: men who have experienced stress, anger and related problems themselves. Your comments are welcome but they're not necessary. Just take what you need and get on with your life.
3 to 1
If you're not feeling great, you're not alone. One in four people will experience some kind of mental health problem in the course of a year. If you're a betting man, that's a 3 to 1 shot.
But that doesn't mean it's easy to talk about it. We all know it isn't - including the men talking on this website. It can be difficult to put how you're feeling into words. This section of the Men's Health Forum site is designed to help you do that. You can be strong without being silent. In fact, strength is often to be found in talking. Without words, too much stress can kill. Three-quarters of suicides (75%) are male.

It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.
Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.
Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
