Men's Health Week 2016: Posters

We have a range of new posters for Men's Health Week 2016: how do you beat stress?
How to use the posters

Some of our new posters use photos, some use cartoons. You may find the cartoons print better if you don't have a high-end printer. For best results, ask your local printer to print from the PDFs.

Some of the posters have a blank space for you to add your own text. There are two ways to use the blank posters:

  • Open the PDF in Adobe Reader. Click on the blank space and type in text. We have set the fonts for you. Then print them with your text included.
  • Or print them blank and then write or overprint your text.

Can also be used as table-talkers or toilet-talkers. (Right at the bottom, there are also two targeted at women: talk to the men in your life.)

There are also cartoons and logos and graphics for online use such as in email newsletters and social media.

How to download

You can download the posters as A3 size PDFs by clicking on the image below. You can print the posters at A3, A4 or even smaller.


The text is:

How do you beat stress?

Running helps. So does any sort of exercise. 

Then there’s singing, dancing, laughing, music, painting, writing, volunteering, helping a mate, learning something new, meditating and getting a good night’s sleep. 

But one thing helps more than anything.

Let's talk.

The text posters all use variations on this theme.

Poster for the Forum's new Beat Stress service

Two posters targeting women


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.
