Mens Health

There are growing problems in men’s health.

  • Isolation, loneliness and depression are now looming as major men’s health issues.
  • Last year in Australia, there were 10 million consultations on mental health, alone.
  • The health system is straining to cope.
  • There is an inability of health services to engage men who are ignoring their health issues.
  • There is little evidence of health services addressing the ‘Baby Boomers’ crisis.
  • There is insufficient attention being paid to preventative activities.
  • The gap in Indigenous health is too big and needs urgent attention.
