"Globally, men die on average 6 years earlier than women, and for largely preventable reasons.
So we’re increasing awareness to stop men dying too young."
As I was walking thought the CBD this morning between clients I saw a bus with a moustache, a fabulous larger than life reminder that its Movember, the month around the world where men are reminded to look after their physical and psychological health.
I am not sure if it is the only campaign with such a simple yet audacious google summary, but the essence of the campaign is simple, men don't look after their physical and mental health and its everyone's responsibility to make sure they do.
What can you do today?
Regular readers would be aware that improving physical and psychological health and well-being is complicated. So heres a simple list:
Grow a mo!
Go to the GP for a check up.
Encourage all the males you know to go to the GP for a check up.
Catch up with a mate you have seen for a while.
Go onto the Movember webpage for ideas.
