Men’s Health Week (15th-20th June)

MHW - L&HThis year’s Men’s Health Week focuses on healthy living challenging men to:

• look after their relationships and wellbeing
• quit smoking
• drink sensibly
• be more active
• watch their weight

One in five men are die before the age of 65. That’s 20% of men who won’t reach retirement age.

Men are less likely to lead a healthy lifestyle, being more likely to smoke, drink alcohol to hazardous levels, and be overweight or obese.

These lifestyles can lead into serious diseases such as cancer, heart diseases and stroke, the risks of which can be reduced by leading a healthy lifestyle.

This year a range of activities have been arranged to celebrate Men’s Health Week – so why not get the ‘boys’ together and take part in some, or even all of the events!!!
