My role


Supporting the Year of the Male

The MHF is supoprting a new campaign from CALM called the Year of the Male. You should pledge your support too.

Our friends at CALM, the Campaign Against Living Miserably, have named 2014 The Year of the Male and launched a Charter for Contemporary Man, which the Men's Health Forum has helped to form. We are encouraging you to pledge support for the Charter.

The Charter is signed by a coalition including the Men's Health Forum. It calls for:

  • a fuller range of expression of masculinity in the media and advertising
  • a shift in thinking about men and boys' needs in the provision of public services
  • a challenge to assumptions about men's roles and skills in the workplace
  • a rethink of the roles, responsibilities and rights of men in family life.

You can read more about the campaign, and other activities that will be going on throughout the year at and @yearofthemale.
