Every year 19th of November is marked around the world as International Men’s Day. The main aim of the day is to highlight and raise awareness for serious issues regarding men’s well-being including but not limited to, high suicide rates, mental health issues, male cancers, abuse and homelessness.

If you would like to join in with the campaign’s work, not just for today but throughout the year, you can do so through many routes. You can start by looking up what events are happening around you in your city and at university. These are often easily found through their own respective websites and social media pages. Events can range from fun initiatives such as Movember Fundraising efforts to more detailed conferences on specific topics, so pick ones that will engage you the most. A good place to get started is UK Events

And if none of these take your fancy then you can taker action by creating an event and getting others involved! There are plenty of ideas for what you can do available here : Things To Do

There is a lot of support available, both online and in person, for a range of physical and mental health issues should you require them. Some of these resources include:
