Men’s Health Week is an important seven days anywhere in the world. From June the 12-18th the nation will stand in solidarity with Australian men, recognizing the significance of men’s mental health issues while promoting awareness of the male approach to health.
Statistics have shown that more males will commit suicide, that more males will die at every stage of life and more males suffer from lifestyle-related health conditions than females of the same age.
Although men are experiencing shorter and less healthy lives, they are still less likely to visit medical practitioners. The precedent has been set that men are not concerned with their own mental health, or that the available health services are not engaging with men effectively.
Men’s Health Week seeks to resolve these issues by raising awareness of preventable health problems and encouraging the early detection and treatment of physical and mental diseases among men and boys. Since the 2000’s Men’s Health Week has operated in Australia, opening a forum for the discussion of the issues central to men’s health within the nation.
Coping with stress is integral to managing mental health. As men who experience high levels of stress are more likely to become depressed, stress management events have become a focus of the national Men’s Health Week. Stress Management Skills events will take place in Queensland during June, giving men the opportunity to understand the significance of stress and giving tips for dealing with tension, personal stress, business-related stress, burnout and fatigue.
Presenter: Dr Lionel Hartley
The Stress Management Event is a FREE to attend event.
