'How to…' - the workshop

Working with men to improve their health? Our new one-day training course will show you how to engage men with your programme - and keep them engaged.
How to engage effectively with men to improve their health

Men are often considered 'hard to reach' when it comes to health. Not any more. Based on the latest research and best practice, the Men's Health Forum's one day workshop pulls the learning together into a practical, accessible package that will enable anyone working in men's health to reach more men, interest more men and improve the health of more men.

What is it?

  • A one day training workshop delivered by experienced Men's Health Forum associate trainers.

What does it offer?

  • The latest insight and information around the issues affecting men’s health and wellbeing and working with men and boys.

Who is the course for?

  • Local areas, commissioners and providers and anyone who wants to empower men to engage with their health

What are the outcomes?

Participants will:

  • Have a better understanding of the issues that both impact and affect the health of men and boys
  • Understand how language and attitudes around men and boys may affect their health choices and therefore health outcomes.
  • Reflect on how health and social care work aimed at men and boys engages with them [systemic barriers].
  • Explore ‘best practice’ and new thinking around Public Health engagement with men and boys.
  • Explore the choices, concerns and behaviours that men and boys exhibit around their own health.
  • Explore and action plan how to take this learning back to services.
  •  Identify how the Men’s Health Forum can provide support.

What do commissioners say about the course?

  • Middlesbrough:

I was impressed by the group and the professionalism the trainers showed to adapting to the group. Great to be a part of it.

Course facilitation was flaw less and greatly delivered.  I will go back and recommend this course for volunteers through to practitioners. Highly enjoyable and great to participate in

Excellent very informative. I hope to deliver all that I have learnt today to my health trainers. I hope my manager will be open to changing a few things starting with our leaflets!

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

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.
