ManKind Project and the Men’s Health Network; Partnering for Men’s Health
Men’s Health week is June 10-17, 2018. The ManKind Project, a nonprofit men’s training and educational organization, is partnering with the Men’s Health Network, a Washington, DC based nonprofit advocacy and education organization, to raise awareness about men’s health issues for the whole month of June.
The ManKind Project, with its global network of men’s peer-support groups, is dedicated to creating safer and healthier communities by supporting healthy masculinity and challenging unhealthy male stereotypes and behaviors. The ManKind Project will promote events throughout the month of June to support men to take charge of their health, get screened for common men’s health conditions, and break the silence about the impacts men’s health problems have on our families and communities. If you’re a man ready to take a challenging step to improving all aspects of your life; including your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual life, consider joining a men’s group or attending a weekend intensive for men offered by the ManKind Project.
Man Up. Get Healthy.
One of the most powerful choices you can make as a man is the choice to care for yourself. Men are often reluctant to seek the help they need because of cultural messages that we are supposed to somehow be indestructible. We’re not. Fear and Shame can be powerful motivators to stay stuck in old behaviors that no longer help you. Today, you can take a big step toward changing that old pattern.
What’s more … you don’t have to do it alone. In the ManKind Project, men have a community to give them the extra support they need to begin creating healthy habits. We also have the skills and resources to help men get unstuck from the stickiest old habits.
