International Mens Day, 19th November 2019
International Men’s Day is celebrated worldwide on 19 November to raise awareness on positive male role models and issues gender equality and the struggles men and boys can face today. Poor mental health and high suicide rates among men is a key focus of the awareness day.
International Men’s Day aims to draw attention to cultural and other barriers which may prevent men from seeking help for their mental health when they feel they need it. The 2019 theme for International Men’s Day is “making a difference for men and boys”.
