Changing the game: Celtic FC shine a light on men’s health
Vitality has teamed up with Celtic FC and its number one, Joe Hart, to hear how the conversation is changing this Men’s Health Awareness month
Whether it’s for ignoring symptoms or bottling up feelings, men are constantly being told to look after themselves better. It’s no wonder why.
The good news is that more men are seeking support services such as talking therapies, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and counselling, according to Vitality data. Meanwhile, many cancer deaths can be avoided through early screening.
Eating better, improving sleep and getting active can also help prevent it. The challenge is often encouraging some men to get symptoms checked, openly share their struggles and embrace a healthier lifestyle.
This Men’s Health Awareness Month, Vitality has teamed up with Celtic FC to kickstart our new Changing the Game video series, which shines a light on important subjects and how the conversation around them is changing.
In part one, we hear from Celtic number one Joe Hart, the club’s head of medical and physiotherapy Tim Williamson and head of performance John Currie.
Vitality members with a qualifying health insurance plan can access a cancer risk assessment through our partner Check4Cancer, which can identify if you are at higher risk of five common cancers – bowel, breast, cervical, prostate and skin cancers.
All this involves is filling out a questionnaire to enable you to understand your potential risk and help direct you to the appropriate screening.
