Movember is an annual charity event started in 2004, and now promoted around the world in places like Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, El Salvador, Spain, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Israel as well as South Africa, Taiwan and the United States.
Movember Foundation runs the Movember event whose ultimate goal is to ‘change the face of men’s health.’ This is an event where men grow moustaches in the month of November to raise awareness of men’s mental health issues such as men’s suicide, testicular cancer and prostate cancer.
It is well known that men can feel an expectation to live up to a certain societally generated macho image and can be hesitant to seek support for both their physical and mental health.
We at TalkingSpace Plus would like to reach out to men of all ages who may feel they might benefit from help with stress, low mood, or anxiety.

Stress is a commonly used word. In the modern world being under pressure and stressed can almost seem ‘normal’. Whilst stress is not a psychological diagnosis, feeling overwhelmed by stress and the feelings this can bring, can affect our mental health.
Feeling overwhelmed by stress can lead us to not having time or motivation to look after ourselves, which in turn can lead to mental health issues like anxiety and depression. Click here to find out more.
TalkingSpace Plus are excited to introduce the new national ‘Better Health – Every Mind Matters’ campaign to support the nation’s mental wellbeing.
The campaign shoes how small changes in a person’s life can bring about major and real differences to an individual’s mental wellbeing. These changes can help us significantly: to lead productive; happier, healthier lives and cope with life’s multiple challenges in a changing and demanding world following the havoc Covid 19 has caused.
