About Men’s Health Research
Men’s Health Research (MHR) is based at the University of British Columbia under the School of Nursing. MHR explores gendered dimensions of men’s health practices and illness management, to better understand the complex interplay of masculinities and other social determinants of health. MHR offers a suite of gender-sensitized community and interventions addressing men’s depression and suicide, tobacco reduction and smoking cessation in fathers and men, and psychosocial prostate cancer care.
