Men’s Health Initiative, Inc. is a nationally recognized 501(c)3 non-profit charity organization dedicated to promoting healthy behaviors among our fathers, sons, brothers, and other loved ones while advancing the academic and scientific fields of men’s health.


MHI, Inc. improves the lives of boys, men, and their loved ones through four primary approaches as represented by the four branches of the MHI, Inc. logo:

  • Conducting original research in the field of men's health
  • Developing, implementing, and evaluating evidence-based health education and behavioral intervention programs
  • Offering consultation services aimed at developing and implementing programs, evaluation, and survey design
  • Informing and encouraging boys and men to adopt healthy behaviors and disseminating our findings to community


MHI, Inc. provides the aforementioned services to encourage more informed decision making among males about their health and wellness and to continue as one of the prominent men’s health research groups in the nation.

Everyone deserves an opportunity to live a healthy, fulfilling life. Only through collective action, however, can we dare to achieve the greatest health for the greatest amount in our communities.
