The next course is on March 7 & 9 between 10am and 12noon
What does it offer?
Men's Health Champions are a tried and tested way to improve health in a community and can break down the barriers that often exist in health care provision. The training was developed as part of the Interreg 2 Seas Step By Step project in Hampshire by Peter Baker and Jim Pollard.
Who is the course for?
Men who want to support other men to engage with their health
Local areas, workplaces, commissioners and providers and anyone who wants to learn about the course and empower men to do this
What are the outcomes?
the basics of men’s health;
the role of a Men's Health Champion;
how to work with men to change health behaviours;
how to work with men during the Covid-19 crisis;
how to signpost them for more information.
You’ll also have a lot of fun and get a copy of our Men's Health Champions manual and our latest Man Manual full of further information.
How much does it cost?
A single place costs £149. You can order and pay online - or order via a Purchase Order (details below).
Can anyone be a Men's Health Champion?
Pretty much. Men's Health Champions are empathetic, good listeners, willing to talk about health and other difficult issues and to be supportive without being directive. You don't need to be a health expert.
Do Men's Health Champions make a difference for men?
The research suggests they can make a real difference. For men, they can be particularly useful: their more informal, man-to-man approach can provide an invaluable stepping stone between the men in their community and traditional, more formal health services.
