Suicide is the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK. BIA is a '21st Century Charity for the 21st Century male’. We believe in 'Prevention Through Self-Management’. We use digital technology that enables them to self-manage, engage and support their own mental health. It's an evidence-based smartphone application providing in-depth tools and support to improve mental wellbeing, created in partnership with Thrive Therapeutic, to be used by men and those that support them in Scotland. Included in the free service is access to The Live Coaching Programme an in-app text-based service that guides men to self-management of their own well-being and improved mental fitness. It is a private and secure system that lets you text-chat to a wellbeing coach at the touch of a button. The service is available 8 am to 8 pm Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays). We call it 'Prevention Through Self-Management' because waiting until a man reaches crisis before he gets help is like throwing a lifebuoy ring into the water when already drowning.
70,000 UK men die prematurely every year at one-and-a-half times the rate of women from a range of problems, most of which are entirely preventable. One in 5 men die before 65! The case for better provision of resources devoted to improving the health and well-being of men therefore seems indisputable. For instance, there is no organised NHS screening programme for prostate cancer although prostate cancer is the commonest major male cancer in the UK, we aim to stop this by raising awareness and providing screening services for: Cardiovascular disease and diabetes in the NHS Health Check; Aortic aneurysm; Skin cancer; Prostate cancer
Colour blindness (colour vision deficiency, or CVD) affects approximately 1 in 12 men (8%) and 1 in 200 women in the world. In Britain this means that there are approximately 3 million colour blind people (about 4.5% of the entire population), most of whom are male. The Colour Blind Awareness organisation has been founded to raise awareness of colour blindness (colour vision deficiency) and aims to be the first point of reference in the UK for people seeking information on colour blindness. The organisation provides support for colour blind people, especially colour blind children and their families and teachers.
Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support for families through our Admiral Nurse service. When things get challenging or difficult for people with dementia and their families, Admiral Nurses work alongside them. They give the compassionate one-to-one support, guidance and practical solutions people need, and that can be hard to find elsewhere. Admiral Nurses are continually trained, developed and supported by Dementia UK. Families that have their support have someone truly expert and caring by their side. They are a lifeline helping families to live more positively with dementia in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear. We believe that everyone who needs the support of a specialist dementia nurse should get one, and we’re working hard to increase the number of Admiral Nurses across the UK.
The objectives of International Men’s Day include a focus on men’s and boy’s health, improving gender relations, promoting gender equality, and highlighting positive male role models.

Following their mother Marie’s death from breast cancer in 1998, the Keating family promised to provide the people of Ireland with vital information, advice and support on the signs and symptoms of cancer and help to prevent cancer or detect it at its earliest stages. The Marie Keating Foundation was established in her memory and with this central ambition in mind. The Foundation's mission is to make cancer less frightening by enlightening and our aim is to live in a world free from the fear of cancer. Today, the Marie Keating Foundation are one of the leading voices in Ireland for cancer prevention, awareness and support. We are committed to being there for people diagnosed with cancer, and their families at every step of this cancer journey, and our services reflect that. Through our information and support services, we reach thousands of people a year, giving education, information and advice focused on cancer prevention and early detection, as well as providing support services and financial assistance to those living with and beyond cancer. Our team of 17 and our Board works tirelessly to ensure that the mission and legacy that the Keating Family established 22 years ago is fulfilled, and everyone in Ireland has access to trusted information on cancer prevention and early detection and that those on a cancer journey have the support they need to come through it.
All men and boys - particularly those in the most disadvantaged areas and communities - will have the information, services and treatments they need to live healthier, longer and more fulfilling lives.
