Helping men self-manage

15/09/14 . News

'How can we best support men to self-manage?' Last week the Department of Health Sciences at the University of York, in partnership with the Men’s Health Forum presented a symposium on self-management support, bringing together experts and self-managing men. 

The Men's Health Forum is supporting pioneering research into men and self-care, conducted by the Department of Health Sciences at the University of York. The Self-Man project has reviewed the published evidence on self-management support interventions, with the aim of creating recommendations and guidance for practitioners, as well as comparing effectiveness, accessibility and acceptability of the various interventions used. 

At this month's conference Men's Health Forum chief executive Martin Tod gave the introductory presentation.



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.
