Mens Health Hawkes Bay

We believe that local community needs to continue to support each other. We have awesome community services and networks here in Hawke's Bay but sometimes who does what, where and how can be hard to access easily. 
It is known that men’s partners and families also feel the economic and social impacts of men’s ill health. The Blokes Book for Hawke’s Bay is a positive step in supporting our families and communities through Mens well being and our vision for happy , healthy Hawke's Bay men.

Introducing the Blokes Book.  Late 2019 10,000 copies of the Blokes Book were distributed into Hawke's Bay and Central Hawke's Bay through social spaces, community places and local services. Read our press here

This first print run was totally exhausted with no more copies available within 2 months and with calls for more, Volume 2 is now underway.Supporting the Blokes Book are some new initiatives, see below for more details and how you can be involved as a workplace or community service. 

If you are a business or organisation that would like to advertise or order copies please get in touch.
The Blokes Book is managed by local charitable trust DADS HQ
