Are you an ‘Action Man’?

There’s no denying that the state of men’s health on the island of Ireland is often poor.  However, there are things which can be done to change this situation and men, themselves, can play a key role in doing this.  ‘Action Man - ten top tips for men’s health’ is a new, free, Man Manual being distributed by the Men’s Health Forum in Ireland   It was launched to mark Men’s Health Week 2023, but was so popular that it is being re-printed for International Men’s Day, which takes place on the 19th of November 2023.

This booklet doesn't preach or lecture - it simply explains: (i) WHY an action is needed; (ii) WHAT can be done about it; and (iii) HOW to find support if you need it.  Thus, the ten top tips put men into the driving seat, and give men the tools and DIY instructions they need to make positive changes - if they choose to be their own ‘Action Man’.

The Man Manual will be available in both hard copy and in electronic format.  To order hard copies, send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.stating:
