Men's Health Week 2011

This week (June 13th - 19th) is Men's Health Week. The point of which is to raise awareness of the health concerns facing men and boys in Australia and to provide tools and information for the community to educate men about their health and well-being issues.
It is also a week to acknowledge the diversity of men and boys in Australia and to celebrate the positive contributions of men and boys to their communities.

Here at the Shire libraries, we can provide information to men on health - both maintaining it and concerns they may face through a variety of resources including books, brochures, cds and DVDs. You can also download brochures and information online to read at home. The libraries also hold a number of biographies about influential men who have succeeded against impossible odds, both physically and mentally.

Also, a number of websites may be useful to you or a family member.

The Australian Men's Shed Association are proud to support Men's Health Week 2011, providing health screenings at a number of Men's Sheds in Australia. Through the link you can search for a Men's Shed near you.
