International Men’s Health Week

This week, right around the world, International Men’s Health Week is putting a focus on men’s physical and mental health and emotional well-being.

The theme of Men’s Health Week 2023 is Healthy Habits – focusing on encouraging men and boys to build healthy habits by identifying small changes they can make that benefit their health and wellbeing.

Men’s Health Week is designed to provoke thought and discussion about what needs to be done to improve male health.

The events held during the week can be replicated year-round to improve the physical, emotional and mental health of men and boys.

Here’s a few tips for Men’s Health Week 2023 about healthy habits:

  • Adopt healthy habits to benefit your physical and mental health this Men’s Health Week.
  • Regular physcicval activity, healthy eating, adequate sleep and spending time with family and friends can have a positive impact.
  • Check in on the men and boys in your life by asking specific questions, making time to listen, showing your support.

About International Men’s Health Week

Men’s Health Week was started in the United States by the US Congress in 1994 to heighten awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. ​

In Australia, there were small and localised Men’s Health Week events in Victoria and then in New South Wales from about 2000 onwards.​

Since then, Men’s Health Week has gained traction, with organisations and community groups across the world celebrating the contributions men and boys make to our society.

In Australia, Men’s Health Week provides a platform for challenging and debating key issues in men’s health and to raise the profile of men, their health outcomes and health needs around the country each June.
