This week, 10th to 16th June, is Men's Health Week. Men’s Health week is run by the Men’s Health Forum, and the focus for 2019 is men’s health by numbers. During Men’s Health Week 2019, we are asking you to join using in raising awareness and understanding of mental health.

In England, around 1 in 8 men have a common mental health problem. Men are also more likely to use potentially harmful coping methods, such as drugs and alcohol, than women.
