COFFS Coast men have the opportunity tomorrow to attend free workshops on men's health to be delivered by international health strategies expert Dr Stephen Carroll.

Stephen's work has helped recognise that the health of men affects not only the individual but also our very culture and society.

For a number of reasons, men in particular have had trouble accessing timely and relevant health care and in the future this needs to be addressed.

The Men's Health Workshops being held tomorrow morning at Nambcuca Heads and tomorrow night at C.ex Coffs are a joint initiative of the Mid North Coast Local Health District's Rural Adversity Mental Health Program and the NSW Department of Primary Industries.

The aim of the workshops is to empower men to take an active involvement in their own health.

Local Rural Adversity Mental Health consultant Darcy Budden said the workshops were non-threatening and feedback from events held earlier this year was very positive.

"The important message of the workshops will be that small changes to lifestyle will translate into bigger outcomes that will impact in a positive way on the man, his family and the wider community. Workshop topics will include cardio-vascular health, testicular cancer, diabetes, prostate disease, mental health, sexual dysfunction, diet and exercise," Mr Budden said.
