Men’s Health Week takes place from 12-18 June 2017. We all know men are the first to complain when it comes to ‘man flu,’ but when it comes to more serious health problems, men are often too shy or embarrassed to come forward and speak to a GP. The week is organised by the Men’s Health Forum (MHF). This is an independent charity which aims to help men and boys by tackling inequalities and issues affecting their health. Formed in 1994 the MHF aims to help by focusing on groups of men who have the worst health and seeing how they can make a difference, whether it be through physical activity, or being there to turn to for mental problems.
