Men’s Health Connected returns from 10-14 May 2121, bringing together leaders in men’s health for a free week-long online gathering.
This year Men’s Health Connected will focus on five themes:
- Men’s Mental Health and Male Suicide Prevention
Male suicide in Australia reached a record high in 2019 with 7 men a day now dying by suicide. So what action is being taken to tackle this issue? If you want to find out about the latest developments in terms of research, policy, practice and funding, this is the event for you.
- Building Men’s Health Literacy
Increasing men’s health literacy is a key goal of the National Men’s Health Strategy. So what is men’s health literacy, what role does it play in improving mens and boys’ health and who is taking a lead on delivering male-friendly approaches to health promotion?
- Men’s Health Champions – The Sector Connector
Australia’s men’s health sector has been convening at the National Men’s Health Gathering since 1995. With no live event planned, this is the perfect opportunity for everyone working with men and boys to connect, network and learn from each other. If you’re passionate about improving the lives and health of men and boys, then you’ll want to join us at The Sector Connector.
- Nursing for Men’s Health
There are more than 350,000 nurses working in Australia and they play a major role in improving men and boys’ health. This one-day event will showcase nursing initiatives that take a male-friendly approach to working with different populations of men as well as highlighting the role of men in nursing.
- Working with Men and Boys in all their diversity
The National Men’s Health Strategy identifies 9 priority populations of men including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, Rural and Remote, CALD and males from LGBTQI+ communities. This event considers work to improve the lives and health of men and boys in all their diversity, including those from priority populations.
