Men's Servives

Men die at an earlier age than women. Men are less likely to get routine medical care or screenings than women. It’s important that men take care of themselves so that they can be there for their families and others. The Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County offers a variety of services to men, both medical and non-medical.

square Father Services:

Father Impact The Father Services is a voluntary program designed for male partners of a pregnant woman, or father of a child (ren), receiving services from any of the following home visitation services:

The goal of the program is to assist fathers in becoming actively involved in the lives of their child(ren). Studies have shown that children from homes with an absent father are more likely to be victims of abuse or neglect, exhibit behavior problems, drop out of school, engage in criminal behavior or become parents at as teens.

We understand that you may not be available during regular 8 to 5 hours. With this in mind, we develop the visitation schedule around your availability and location. Services are offered throughout Pinellas County.

Upon enrollment in the program you will be assigned a Family Support Worker who is a father himself. He will assist you with developing a plan to address your needs and goals. The plan will include some or all of the following services:

  • Home and Field Visits
  • Men’s Health
  • Parenting Education
  • Discussion Groups (weekly)
  • Sports Activities
  • Advocacy
  • Case Management
  • Individual Goal Setting/ Achievement
  • Workshops
  • Referrals for needed services
  • Community Involvement Activities

square Health Services:

Men have high rates of cancer, heart disease and obesity. There are several medical screening and educational programs available at the Health Department including prostate cancer, STD and HIV, skin cancer, food and nutrition. These programs are offered at most of our locations and you can contact the location nearest you to get specific information.

Men’s Health Services supports many of these efforts and information for services in the community and the Health Department and may be obtained at 727-462 MALE (6253) from a Registered Nurse.

Family planning services for men are also available. This is primarily our no-scalpel vasectomy program and condom distribution. The vasectomy program, for men who have the size of family that they want is available to any man in the community on a sliding fee scale. Those interested can attend an information session to help make the decision that is right for them. The vasectomies are done by a Board-Certified Urologist. For information on this program call 727-462-MALE (6253)
