Movember – Men’s Health Awareness Month

Movember – Men’s Health Awareness Month
22nd October 2021 c360admin

We would like to share with you a little message from the people at Movember –

 

Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends face a health crisis that isn’t being talked about. Men are dying too young. We can’t afford to stay silent.

That’s why we’re taking action. We’re the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year-round. We’re addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.

To find out more about Movember and the great work they do please visit – https://uk.movember.com/ they also have some great resources to help with different health needs.
