Man MOT for the Mind

Man MOT for the Mind - our INTERACTIVE manual that boosts mental wellbeing

The brand new interactive manual for men of all ages. However good or bad we're feeling, there's a lot we CAN DO to improve mental wellbeing

One man in five dies before he’s 65. Not just men in mid-life but young men too. The causes are not only physical, they’re also in our head. This booklet’s CAN DO approach offers you:

  • a simple, effective way to figure out how you’re really feeling
  • a tool-kit of CHECKS and CHALLENGES to help keep you in a good place or take you to a better one. 

Based on five proven, evidence-based ways to feel better, Man MOT For The Mind will show you just how much we CAN DO to boost our own mental wellbeing.

A healthier life need not be a big deal. With the Men’s Health Forum’s Man MOT For The Mind, it’s effective 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. 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.
