For International Men's Day 2021, the Forum is running its popular CAN DO Challenge. We'll be encouraging you to fundraise by fitting all Five Ways To Wellbeing (Connect, Be Active, Notice, Discover, Offer) into the one day. Read all about it here.

What is International Men's Day?

Every year in the UK, the day is marked by more and more women, men and organisations across the country.  Across November there are Parliamentary debates, policy launches, employer days, community events, health days, business events, staff support days, debates, student events, political events, lectures, research launches, gigs, charity promotion days,  book launches, mental health discussions, film showings, conferences, competitions, comedy nights, get-togethers, award announcements and charity fundraisers – the most anywhere in the world.

Many take the opportunity to communicate key health messages to the men in their workplace or organisation - at the Men's Health Forum we try to provide the resources top help you do this including our popular Man Manuals which you can buy off-the-shelf or in custom formats.

The three core themes for International Men’s Day in the UK are:

  • Making a positive difference to the wellbeing and lives of men and boys
  • Raising awareness and/or funds for charities supporting men and boys’ wellbeing
  • Promoting a positive conversation about men, manhood and masculinity
How we can help

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.
