Men's Health Noosa Heads

Men who are mentally and physically strong have healthy lives, positive personal and professional relationships and actively contribute to community.

To raise awareness around improving men’s health, there needs to be a focus on prevention, including approaches that target the different stages of a man’s life.

Health surveys show that men smoke more tobacco, drink more alcohol, are less active than women and have a higher rate of depression and suicide.

Research shows that there are strong links between men’s reproductive health and general health. Seeing a doctor for a reproductive health problem can lead to getting help for other health issues.

Some men’s health issues are related to male hormones (testosterone) and ageing, such as osteoporosis. Other issues may not be serious health problems but may cause distress and effective treatments are available.

Please don’t hesitate to see one of our GP’s with any concerns you may have including:
