The health website Healthline has listed our site on its Best Men's Health Blogs for 2018. Thank you.

Healthline's outreach coordinator Lauren Kugler said: 'We carefully selected each blog based on the quality of content, the frequency of posts, and a connection to their community. We feel Men's Health Forum specifically earned this accolade by helping to ensure all men have access to the information they need to live a healthy and robust life. We’re excited to showcase Men's Health Forum on Healthline and help empower users. Keep up your amazing work!'

Healthline is a US-based site that says its mission is to be 'your most trusted ally in your pursuit of health and well-being'. It appears to be funded by advertising.

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.
