Jim Pollard said:

'The spread of Coronavirus has really shone a spotlight on the importance of keeping healthy now more than ever before – not least as prevention is often better than cure.

This book is for all men who are interested in their health and well-being, and all men who are not. It’s a positive, easy-to-read, non-medical introduction to health that focuses on boosting men’s physical and mental wellbeing – no matter your age.'

Forum patron Professor Alan White said:

This is a really timely publication. It’s vitally important that men can make informed decisions about their health and wellbeing, particularly at a time when people may feel less able to go to the doctor’s or hospital.

The Men’s Health Manual provides clear, digestible information and a host of helpful pointers for men of all ages on all the key health issues including those we find hard to discuss or address. What’s more, it’s easy and enjoyable to read.

25p from each copy to the Men's Health Forum

 

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.
