This book discusses the main health issues that men face today. Each chapter focuses on a single condition or group of related conditions effecting men. This 70+ page book discusses the factors that increase health risks, shows how to recognize symptoms, and gives practical, easy-to-implement prevention strategies.
To make the information in this book as helpful as possible, every chapter was carefully checked by a professional with expertise in that particular field.

We've all heard the expression, "It's all in your head." Your mental health affects everything: your mood, your physical health, your behavior, how you sleep, your appetite, your relationships, your social life, your performance at work or school, and more.
This book was written to provide men of all ages, and those who love them, with important and realistic perspectives about mental health along with realistic and practical approaches that can make a difference in their lives. Experts (psychiatrists, physicians, psychologists, public health experts, counselors, and social workers) with different perspectives have come together to provide insights and reflections on the emotional needs of men while explaining how men can ask for help, with dignity, when needed. This book highlights common signs and symptoms of trouble to help men and those who love them recognize the need for intervention, and suggestions for dealing with everyday problems when intervention may not be needed.
