Happy Pride Month

The reason for the poor state of men’s health are numerous and complex and include: 
 
  • Lack of awareness and understanding of the health issues men face
  • Men not openly discussing their health and how they’re feeling
  • Reluctance to take action when men don’t feel physically or mentally well
  • Men engaging in risky activities that threaten their health  
  • Stigmas surrounding mental health
  • Men are 24 percent less likely than women to have visited a doctor within the past year5
 
The Men’s Health Month Awareness aims to change this way of thinking by putting a fun twist on this serious issue. Using the moustache as a catalyst, the idea is to bring about change and give men the opportunity and confidence to learn and talk about their health and take action when needed. 
 
As a global men’s health movement this information contributes to improving the lives of men around the world. To achieve this, we challenge men to grow moustaches during Movember the month formerly known as November and then now for the month of June, let’s get educated on prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems. Raise awareness for Men’s Health Month is important as progress towards:
 
  • Reduced mortality from prostate, testicular cancer and men’s suicide 
  • Men living with prostate or testicular cancer being physically and mentally well
  • Men and boys understanding how to be mentally healthy and taking action when they experience mental health problems
  • Men and boys with mental health problems not being discriminated against
