What is Wear BLUE?

There is an ongoing, increasing and predominantly silent crisis in the health and well-being of men. Due to a lack of awareness, poor health education, and culturally induced behavior patterns in their work and personal lives, men’s health and well-being are deteriorating steadily. Society is being dramatically affected because men are living approximately 5 years less than women. Wear BLUE was created by Men’s Health Network to raise awareness about men’s health issues.

A Wear BLUE event can educate men, women, and their families of the need to raise awareness of this silent crisis in men’s health. Use the information, tools, and resources on this site to help you plan an impactful Wear BLUE event in your workplace, religious, or community group. Wear BLUE provides a unique platform for awareness and education efforts as well as visual support.
