The NCMH was established in January 2008 with the aim of developing innovative and multi-disciplinary research and training programmes on men’s health. 
It is a national Centre in Ireland dedicated to men’s health research which has developed strong international links with similar Centres in Australia and the UK. The NCMH has a close working relationship with the HSE and the Department of Health and Children, and has also developed strong partnerships with the Men’s Health Forum in Ireland, the European Men’s Health Forum, the Institute of Public Health in Ireland, the Irish College of General Practitioners and the National Office for Suicide Prevention.
The Centre is committed to expanding its research and training activities over the next 5 years in co-operation with the HSE.
