Whether it’s with other men, women or their GP, men are often reluctant to talk about their concerns.

Many men experience problems with their reproductive health, and these can be linked to other problems such as heart disease, diabetes, anxiety and depression.

But having knowledge about potential problems is a good way to help avoid them.

As part of Men’s Health Week, the group Andrology Australia has planned a range of events in Lismore that they hope will get men talking.

It all begins today (Tuesday, June 12) with a morning tea launch, titled ‘It’s Healthy to Talk in Lismore’ with Mayor Isaac Smith, Simon von Saldern, CEO of Andrology Australia and local health district staff at Lismore Square from 11am.

‘It’s Healthy To Talk In Lismore’ aims to break stereotypes surrounding men’s health and encourage open conversation by showing the rest of the country that it’s healthy and necessary to talk about your issues, problems and health concerns.

Throughout the week the men of Lismore will be given the opportunity to talk about their health and wellbeing, and to educate themselves on what to look out for and when to take action.

Other events during the week will include:

Wednesday 13: Hurford Hardwoods and Norco down tools for ‘smoko’ because ‘It’s Healthy To Talk’.

Thursday 14:  Barbecue Lunch and open discussion at the Men’s Shed

Friday 15: Crossfit Lismore ‘It’s Healthy To Talk’ Challenge plus Q&A at Lismore Square with Simon.

Saturday 16: Charity Rugby Match between Lismore City and SCU, complete with Andrology Australia VIP area to celebrate lots of ‘talking’ and the end of Men’s Health Week.

The events are open to all men regardless of age – so don’t hesitate, head on down.
