Men’s Health Week

Officially, Men’s Health Week runs until 19 June 2015 but you can run a campaign in your workplace for as long as you wish.

Check the Men’s Health Forum website for information and materials: https://www.menshealthforum.org.uk/.  This is the link to the Man Manual:  http://issuu.com/menshealthforum/docs/man_2015_hrfinal . Here is a link to posters, which you can print off: https://www.menshealthforum.org.uk/poster-downloads. There are also useful Men’s Health pages on the NHS Choices website: http://www.nhs.uk/chq/pages/category.aspx?CategoryID=61

Any promotional campaign would need to be accompanied by information on services available locally.
