Events and health promotion activities in local communities are a great way to raise awareness of men’s health issues. That’s why we've developed a Men's Health Presentation Kit to help get the message across.
Men’s Health Presentation Kit
Our handy Men’s Health Presentation Kit helps organisations, businesses and individuals raise community awareness for a range of men’s health issues. The kit is designed to provide information on sexual and reproductive health, and associated conditions such as depression, cardiovascular disease, and alcohol and drug abuse.
In the past, the kits have been used at health awareness events at Men's Sheds, in prisons, community health centres, local council/shire events, and in male-dominated businesses such as mining. The events help to increase awareness of health conditions and to encourage men to talk about their health with GPs, nurses and other health professionals, in addition to family members, partners and each other.
We believe that by holding health events, we can get conversations started and reduce the stigma around seeking help for issues that are sometimes difficult to talk about.
Our Men's Health Presentation Kit is currently being redeveloped in partnership with the Australian Men’s Shed Association.
Find a speaker
Ideally, speakers will have experience presenting to a crowd, and be entertaining, engaging and approachable.
We have limited capacity to provide speakers for health events, so before contacting us, it’s best to get in touch with your local health experts. They’ll have a sound knowledge of your community and understand the services available in the area.
Your local health service, doctor clinic, Men’s Shed, or primary health network might also be able to point you in the right direction.
If your event has an entertainment budget, public speakers can also be booked through speaker agencies for a fee.
