It’s Healthy to Talk 

For many different reasons, men often feel they can’t talk about their own physical health or emotions. Men tend to battle through, ignoring warning signs just hoping they will go away, however, it is healthy to talk. Having a chat to someone in your family, or a mate at work, in the men’s shed, at band practise or the local sporting club, can stop a minor problem turning into something bigger.

In Men’s Health Week 11-17 June 2018, we are encouraging all men to start a conversation about their health and wellbeing with someone they trust. The simple act of sharing a concern can turn someone’s life around. We urge all men to talk about how they are feeling.

We are encouraging all men to remember:

  • It’s healthy to talk. Have a conversation with someone you trust.
  • You are not alone. Many men experience problems with their reproductive health, and these are commonly linked to more serious problems, like heart disease, diabetes, anxiety and depression.
  • Be informed. Having knowledge about potential problems is a good way to help avoid them. We have a range of fact sheets and information booklets that you can view online or order free of charge
  • Don’t ignore change. Go and see your doctor for any concerns.

Help spread the word

Why not organise a display of resources for your workplace or primary health care setting, run a men’s health event, host a BBQ or link into a local sporting or cultural event. This Men’s Health Week is all about looking for opportunities to engage men in your community and encourage healthy conversations.
