Give yourself an MOT this Men’s Health Week
We’ve been through a lot these last couple of years. COVID has not gone away, not at all, but we are beginning to live with it. To do this we need to be at the top of our game, physically and mentally. So for this years Men’s Health week, 13-19 June, it’s time for men everywhere to give yourselves an MOT. Macmillan estimates that across the UK there are around 50,000 ‘missing’ cancer diagnosis’, meaning that compared to a similar timeframe last year, 50,000 fewer people have been diagnosed with cancer making your MOT all the more important. Find out how to do this here.
Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership’s health and wellbeing page also contains lots of resources on Men’s health including recorded webinars with the fantastic Gareth Thomas CBE, famous A&E doctor Dr Alex George and some great local support groups for men. We also have lots of self help guides, resources and signposting.
Please also remember we have lots of fantastic health and wellbeing workshops which you can find details for and book at our booking page on everything from sleep, stress, burnout and financial wellbeing support. Our Sleep Platform holds the recorded webinar from our Sleep Essentials for Men workshop and you can access log in details for this via our booking page.
If you have any questions or want to know about any support available to you please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Help us in supporting our male colleagues, family and friends by sharing these resources within your teams and at home.
