June is Men’s Health Month.

Men's Health Month is aimed at raising awareness of preventable health problems and encouraging the early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.

NZ's Men's Health Month is about getting men and boys talking about their health concerns, and asking their mates how they are doing.

The website has a series of health topics and information on how they affect men, and well as some guidance on how they can take action to live healthily

There's also a collection of shareable videos from "good fellas", talking about their health experiences, and a list of support groups for men

For workplaces

Men's Health Month gives workplaces, healthcare providers, the media - everyone - the opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury, and to talk about what's happening to them.

Workplaces in certain regions of the country may be able to book a workplace talk (for a fee), but all workplaces can access posters, stickers, brochures, t-shirts and other resourcefrom the website.
