Boys and young men's health survey

31/07/14 . Partners

Our partners at National Childrens Bureau want to identify what might help today’s boys and young men develop into confident users of health information and services.

They are asking adult men to share their views because preventable health problems and premature mortality are affecting too many men in the UK, with one in five dying under the age of 65. Amongst 20-24 year olds there are five male suicides for each female suicide. There is also evidence that men have lower levels of health literacy than women and are less likely to acknowledge illness or to seek help.

Please fill in and/or share their short, anonymous survey for men. They want to hear from any men aged 16+ and living in England, from your professional networks and beyond! Your assistance in reaching young men (16-24) is particularly appreciated. The survey is available in a printable format.

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.
