Did you know today is International Men’s Day? The 19th of November has been celebrated annually for the past two decades – a day where we shine a spotlight on men who are making a positive difference by being positive role models and to raise awareness of issues men face on a global scale.
The theme this year is “Making a Difference for Men and Boys”. We’re encouraging people to have open conversations on a wide range of topics including men’s mental health and wellbeing.
The day also coincides with Movember a month-long campaign throughout November where men grow their facial hair to promote conversations about men’s mental health, suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
Facial hair or no facial hair, International Men’s Day encourages men to lead by example and raise awareness of men’s wellbeing. Today we’re proud to be celebrating the positive value men bring to the world, their families and communities.
Happy International Men’s Day 2019!
