National Children’s Bureau wants to identify what might help today’s boys and young men develop into confident users of health information and services by completing a short, anonymous online survey.
NCB is asking adult men to share their views because preventable health problems and premature mortality are affecting too many men in the UK, with one in five dying under the age of 65. Amongst 20-24 year olds there are five male suicides for each female suicide. There is also evidence that men have lower levels of health literacy than women and are less likely to acknowledge illness or to seek help.
NCB would like to hear from any men aged 16+ and living in England, from professional networks and beyond! Any assistance in reaching young men (16-24) is particularly appreciated. The survey is also available in a printable format. To access the online survey, go to: www.surveymonkey.com
