Man MOT - our new INTERACTIVE manual that challenges you to get healthier

The brand new interactive manual. Do-it-yourself health checks & challenges​ for men of all ages.

One man in five dies before he’s 65. It’s not just men in mid-life, it’s young men too. And the causes are not just physical, they can also be in our head. 

This booklet asks:

  • how healthy are you?
  • how healthy is your lifestyle?

It helps you answer these questions using simple measures and CHECKS. Then it CHALLENGES you: how will you get healthier? There are places throughout the booklet for you to record where you are right now and to keep an eye on the changes over time. There are 25 challenges in all - taking just a couple of them will improve your health.

A healthier life need not be a big deal. With the Men’s Health Forum’s MAN MOT, it’s easy and it’s fun.

The 20 page full colour A5 booklet, written by Jim Pollard with cartoons by John Byrne is full of simple, practical tips that will improve the health of pretty much anyone.

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.
