Join the Men’s Health Movement
Supporting the men’s health movement in Australia starts with being informed about what is going on to help men and boys live longer, healthier lives.
Connecting with the Australian Men’s Health Forum is any easy way to do this. AMHF has four bulletins that cover a range of topics, and released at regular intervals.
Our general Men’s Health News hits your inbox monthly and will keep you abreast of developments in the men’s health sector in Australia, such as latest research around men’s health issues, news on male suicide prevention, how to get involved with the Men’s Health Awards, Men’s Health Week and other major events, and mainstream content relating to men and boys’ health.
It's the sort of information you won’t find on the front, back or middle pages of local and national media outlets. Men’s Health News is a great way to ensure you keep across the men’s health landscape in a concise, digestible format.
Working with Men is a quarterly newsletter designed for people who work with men and boys, and who are particularly interested in examples of best practice in men’s health from Australia and around the world.
Our focus is on the overlap between the social and medical aspects of men’s health and in highlighting effective, innovative and leading approaches to improving the quality of health services.
We use the term ‘male-friendly’ a lot: AMHF’s ‘Guide to Developing Male-Friendly Services’ identifies some of the key characteristics that are common to health initiatives that work for men. The Working with Men newsletter will keep you informed about on-going Male-Friendly resources, Working-With-Men toolkits, and training and educational resources in the pipeline, through the shared knowledge of AMHF’s network.
The Men’s Health Policy newsletter is also quarterly and directed at people wanting to advocate for government policies that improve men’s health. One of the key roles of AMHF is to advise politicians and policymakers on the actions they can take to create a healthier future for men and boys.
The Men’s Health Policy update will keep you across our latest activity in this area and alert you to campaigns initiated through our network of leading men’s health organisations. We’ll also let you know when we release new reports such as:
Men’s Health Report Cards
Accidental Heroes: Making death by injury a men’s health issue
Funding Men’s Health
A Charter for Men’s Mental Health
Giving Men a Helping Hand: The case for a male suicide prevention strategy
We’d love to know what issues you are passionate about. Take the Men’s Health Matters survey.
The fourth newsletter, Know Your Man Facts, is a bi-monthly update for Men’s Health Champions … meaning, anyone who wants to take action to improve the lives of men and boys. You’ll receive information from our men’s health calendar letting you know about upcoming opportunities to talk about men’s health.
You’ll also get access to resources that will support your events, such as the latest Know Your Man Facts campaigns and toolkits as well as resources from other organisations that you can use to be a Men's Health Champion in your community or workplace.
There are currently three Know Your Man Facts toolkits containing easy-to-use presentations, infographics and social media graphics. They are designed to show how people can spot a health issue, take action to improve their own health and how to help a mate.
