Men's Health Week

Men’s Health Week

Men’s Health Week runs from 11 to 17 June and celebrates the strengths of men, the contributions they make and the important role they play in society.

This year’s theme “Men and Families: Making Healthy Connections” explores the different ways families can support the health and wellbeing of men & boys, and the positive they make to their families.  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.

Support options:

There are a wide range of community services available across Australia and locally in the ACT to support mental health such as: 

  • The Beyond Blue Healthy Dads initiative aims to support the mental health of men during the transition to fatherhood.  With one in seven new fathers experiencing high levels of psychological distress after the birth of a baby, the initiative provides men with information, tools and support to recognise and act on their feelings of not being able to cope.
  • The Movember Foundation, tackles some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.
  • Mindmax App appeals to any man into sport. The approach is to “train your mind like you do your body”. Led by the AFL Players Association, this is a digital platform that uses sport, videogames and wellbeing science to connect Australian men aged 16 to 35, and encourages them to start conversations, share experiences and shift attitudes and behaviours to build fit minds.
  • ACT Health: Mental Health Triage provides a 24-hour, 7 days a week telephone screening/assessment and referral service for ACT residents who have a mental illness, their families and their carers 1800 629 354 or 6205 1065.
