Men’s Health Week

This week is Men’s Health Week. It runs from today, 12th and finishes on Sunday 18th June – which is Fathers’ Day. During 2017, the theme for the island of Ireland is: ‘It’s all about HIM’, and the key question is: ‘how are you doing?

Also tune in to our podcast of an interview conducted by Mary Farrelly of Together FM with Finian Murray, Secretary of The Men’s Health Forum in Ireland and a Men’s Health Development Officer with the HSE.

The Men’s Health Forum in Ireland (MHFI) is a diverse network of individuals – both men and women – and organisations, working on an all-Ireland basis to enhance the health and well-being of men and boys through research, advocacy, training, networking and demonstration projects.

The website of the organisation – – is worth checking out as it has lots of resources, including its ‘Challenges and Choices’ Man Manual’ which has lots of useful practical tips on various health aspects.
