Covid-19 and weight-management
The Obesity and Healthy Weight Team in the Diet Obesity and Physical Activity division in Public Health England are looking at people’s experiences with weight management services during the Covid-19 incident. They are collaborating with Leeds Beckett University, University College London and Leeds University to explore the effects of Covid-19 on young people and adult tier 2 and 3 weight management services (WMS) across England. The survey will take about 18 minutes to complete. Choose the survey for your target group:
- For adult over 18 living with obesity
- For providers/commissioners of adult services (tier 2 and 3 WMS)
- For a young person 16-19 living with obesity or overweight
- For providers/commissioners of child/young person services
- For local authority personnel responsible for WMS
Covid-19 and health behaviour
A new study at University College London aims to assess the impact of Covid-19 on the health behaviours that cause the majority of avoidable deaths in the UK.
Covid-19: services to men
Our survey of how services to men are being affected during the pandemic. Takes just 10 minutes.
As part of our work to support men's health during the current pandemic, we want to publicise the services that are out there so that men can find the services they need more easily.
Covid-19: psychological & social
University College London has launched a study into the psychological and social effects of Covid-19 and social distancing measures in the UK.
Men and obesity
Robert Gordon University PhD Psychology research project: I ate because… - a qualitative study of British obese participants’ experiences of stress eating. You can take part if you're over 18 and obese. For the full background follow the link:
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.
