Healthy Living for Men

Manual available now

Men's Health Week 2015 focused on healthy living challenging men to:

  • Look after their relationships and wellbeing

  • Don't smoke

  • Drink sensibly

  • Be active

  • Watch their weight

  • Turn up to their NHS Health Check

Why this topic?

Men are less likely to lead a healthy lifestyle. They are more likely to smoke, drink alcohol to hazardous levels and be overweight or obese. These lifestyles can lead into serious diseases such as cancer, heart diseases and stokes, the risk of which can be reduced by leading a healthy lifestyle. Our Men's Health Manifesto challenges men and health providers on these issues.

Get involved

Anyone can take part in Men's Health Week, especially local organisations, public health teams, NHS and employers.

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.
