Chooseday 11th June - Choose Your Health... Man!

Good Morning,

🌟 Happy Chooseday! 🌟

This Chooseday, let's focus on something incredibly important: Men's Health Week, running from June 10th to 16th.

This week is all about raising awareness for men’s health issues and encouraging men to take charge of their well-being. It's a perfect time to shine a light on the importance of physical, mental, and emotional health for men. 💙

Did you know that men are less likely to seek help for health issues and often neglect their physical and mental well-being?

Australian men have a lower life expectancy, are more likely to be overweight and experience higher rates of a range of chronic diseases in comparison to women.[1]

And the most staggering statistic of all... Death by suicide is more than three times as common in Australian men in comparison to women.[2] 

It's time to change that.

Let's encourage the men in our lives to prioritize their health and seek the support they need.

Here are four amazing charities dedicated to improving men's health that you can support this Men's Health Week:

Gotcha4Life focuses on building mental fitness, social connection, and emotional resilience among men and boys. They offer workshops, events, and programs designed to equip individuals with the tools to cope with life's challenges and maintain strong mental health. 

Mentoring Men provides free, long-term, one-to-one life mentoring for men who need support to navigate life's challenges. Their goal is to ensure no man walks alone and that every man has the opportunity to build a meaningful, thriving life. 

The Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia is dedicated to reducing the impact of prostate cancer on Australian men, their partners, and families. They provide research funding, awareness programs, and support services to improve health outcomes. 

Movember is a global organization committed to changing the face of men's health. They focus on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention. Movember raises funds and awareness through their iconic mustache-growing campaign each November, but their impact continues year-round.

Supporting these charities helps provide essential services, research, and programs that make a real difference in men's lives.

Let's make this Men's Health Week a time to encourage open conversations about health, support each other, and take action towards better health outcomes for all men.

Whether it's a simple check-in, encouraging a friend to see a doctor, or donating to these incredible charities, every action counts.

Choose to make a difference this Men's Health Week. Together, we can help men lead healthier, happier lives. 💙
