Free 'Action Man' 2024 Manuals

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 free Man Manual which has been revised and updated by the Men’s Health Forum in Ireland to mark Men’s Health Week 2024.

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 you into the driving seat, and give you the tools and DIY instructions to make positive changes - if you choose to be your own ‘Action Man’.

During Men’s Health Week 2024, this booklet will be available in hard copy and in electronic format.  If you require large quantities (over 25), or you are based in Northern Ireland, send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
