The Success of Men's Health Week 2019

This year MHW as run by the Men’s Health Information and Resource Centre has had considerable success. The report shows the growing “pick up” of the encouragement from MHIRC for communities of all kinds across the country to DO something in their area to draw attention both to men’s contributions to the health of their communities and the need for services to reach out to boys and men in “male-friendly” ways. This was one of the themes of this year’s week. The others were “Encouraging good contact between boys and Men”, Encouraging Learning with and from Indigenous men” and “Encouraging Development of successful suicide prevention Programs”.

Once again the Australian Federal Police launched the Week, this year in the persons of Commander Mark Ney and AFP Federal Agent Daniel Mill, who represented the Aboriginal community within the Police Force. We note that learning with and from Aboriginal men have always been a theme of MHIRC and was highlighted this year.
