Promoting healthier lives for New Zealand men

Posted on February 11, 2024

Did you know that men visit the doctor less often than women and have 3 times the suicide rate? Loneliness in men and a lack of meaningful connection are perhaps the most important associated factors for male suicide.

Now, with the launch of The Men’s Health Collective Aotearoa New Zealand (MHCA), men, including your patients, can receive online support with 6-week modules on wellbeing, relationships, and group facilitation.

The key to maintaining strong friendships is to meet up twice a week with the four people closest to you. That’s why these modules show men how to reveal their emotional reality to the people around them and provide them with the tools to articulate how things are really going in their lives, thereby preventing male loneliness that occurs when men are embedded in social networks but isolated from meaningful conversation.

Together we can advance men’s health and well-being with a collective approach to address issues men often face including shame, communication, and awkwardness when discussing health, well-being, and relationships.

Join our coalition of thought-leaders, health professionals, and men, as well as their partners, family, and support systems, to help us make a difference, spark meaningful conversations, and provide resources for community and personal development.
