International Men’s Health Week

June 12, 2023

We all understand life can get busy, but this week we want to encourage our local community of boys and men to consider their health and have a chat with a mate.

The theme this year is Healthy Habits, where the aim is to address not just physical health but also mental and emotional wellbeing.

We would love to help you prioritise building healthy habits, discuss preventative care strategies, being proactive with early detection and general health management.

One of the goals of International Men’s Week is to encourage conversation about important health issues and to chat to a mate – helping to reduce the stigma surrounding mean’s health and empower men and boys to make informed decisions about their own health.

If you feel like it’s time for a check-up, if something has changed in your overall health, or if you are finding that you may need to talk to someone – please consider reaching out to us to book an appointment today on 8553 2037

If you are aged over 45 please ask our friendly staff about booking in for a free Healthy Heart check.
