Supporting the needs of men throughout life's natural stages.

WPA LifeStage Health : Men's Health

Across the life stages

With men less likely than women to visit a GP or a pharmacy, and less likely than women to acknowledge illness or seek help when sick, it is important to offer support.

34% of men say they would be embarrassed or ashamed to take time off work for mental heath conditions such as anxiety or depression, with younger men needing extra support given two thirds of deaths under 35 are male and the largest cause is suicide 1. One in five men over 50 2 will have testosterone deficiency with fatigue, erectile problems, depression, weight gain and poor concentration being listed as some of the common symptoms. With simple testing and treatments available men should not ignore their symptoms.

These statistics highlight the need to encourage everyone to seek treatment and understand it's important that they get the support they need, when they need it. LifeStage Health has been designed to support men throughout life's natural stages.
