Man Manuals

Our range of publications for ALL men - the essential information made accessible.

Men aren't interested in health information, right? Wrong. The Men's Health Forum has sold over a million of its man manuals - the information men need in a format that they want. 

Produced in partnership with Haynes, our man manuals are 20 or 36 page A5 men's health information guides that are impartial, authoritative and provide information for men about a range of health issues that affect their everyday lives. Buy them off the shelf from our list of titles in print or work with us to produce your own.

If we don't currently produce the manual you need for your work, ask us about a custom manual. We can produce whatever you need for whatever group of men you're working with. Your content (either written by you or by us) in our award-winning format.

We have a long track record of producing tailor-made male health manuals for a variety of partners - local authorities, local NHS organisations, companies and voluntary sector organisations.

Kate Dale, Yorkshire Rural Support Network Co-ordinator, was delighted with her Fit For Farming manual.

'The Yorkshire Rural Support Network have been delighted to work with Men's Health Forum on Fit for Farming - a one stop shop for good farmer health. The Men's Health Forum were helpful and supportive every step of the way, working to exacting standards and our tight time scales. They have produced a really first class booklet!'

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. So we’re asking.

In the UK, one man in five dies before the age of 65. If we had health policies and services that better reflected the needs of the whole population, it might not be like that. But it is. Policies and services and indeed men have been like this for a long time and they don’t change overnight just because we want them to.

It’s true that the UK’s men don’t have it bad compared to some other groups. We’re not asking you to ‘feel sorry’ for men or put them first. We’re talking here about something more complicated, something that falls outside the traditional charity fund-raising model of ‘doing something for those less fortunate than ourselves’. That model raises money but it seldom changes much. We’re talking about changing the way we look at the world. There is nothing inevitable about premature male death. Services accessible to all, a population better informed. These would benefit everyone - rich and poor, young and old, male and female - and that’s what we’re campaigning for.

We’re not asking you to look at images of pity, we’re just asking you to look around at the society you live in, at the men you know and at the families with sons, fathers and grandads missing.

Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
