Social Media Toolkit for Men’s Health Month

June is Men’s Health Month and we use social media to share education and awareness about men’s health issues around the world. You can help us spread the message by using this social media toolkit — it’s packed with example Tweets, pictures, Facebook posts and health resource links.

Please help share! Also, please feel free to customize and/or use your own, unique ways to help the cause. The goal is always the same: Help the men you know live healthier, happier lives.
