Men are more likely to put off getting help for health issues, as many think they are supposed to be tough, self-reliant, and manage pain. Compared to women, they are also more reluctant to openly discuss health issues, couple with an 'it'll be alright' male attitude.
There are numerous reasons for the poor state of men's health in Australia and around the world, but the main one is lack of awareness of the health issues they face. This fear of 'showing weakness' has serious health implications in the long term, with men reporting more severe and chronic illness, such as cancer and cardiovascular disease, than women.
So the vital message to get out remains the same: men's health and wellbeing matter, and with the right information delivered in this seminar, and a willingness to make a few changes, men can improve and maintain a good and healthy life.
