Men's mental health month - how to get involved
Join us this November as we turn our focus to men’s mental health. To succeed in addressing the causes of poor mental health, we must equip those who identify as male or a man to find the path to better mental health.
Ways to get involved with the month
Message a mate
Message a mate to check they're alright. If you are worried about someone in your life who is going through a hard time, talking can be the first step.
Wear our green ribbon
Create a walking safe space for men to reach out when they are struggling. #PinItForMensMentalHealth
Host a Curry & Chaat
