Movember is Back !
Movember is the leading campaign to change the face of men’s health on a global scale, focusing on mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Men are facing a health crisis that isn’t being talked about. They are dying too young, before their time. We’re taking action and we need your help.
Movember is also known as No-Shave November. It’s an annual event involving the growing of moustaches to raise awareness of various cancers. For the past Five years, CARF has been instrumental in promoting men’s health through Movember campaign. This year, CARF wishes to be a part of this event wherein men will grow their facial hair during the month of November. On the last day there would be a celebration and the winner will be announced with the title “Man of Movember”.
The goal of Movember is to “Change the face of men's health”. By encouraging everyone to get involved, Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths.
CARF besides doing annual check-ups encourages men to be aware of family history of cancer and to adopt a healthier lifestyle and in turn to create & spread awareness regarding Prostate Cancer and Testicular Cancer in Men. The results of poor mental health can be deadly. Globally, a man dies every minute from suicide. Men, regardless of age group, often don't recognise when they’re experiencing a mental health issue, and may not be comfortable asking for help. The uncomfortable truth is that some stereotypical forms of masculinity are killing men.To address this issue on a bigger level, CARF is creating awareness about mental health during the campaign of Movember.
A public health initiative supported by the Cancer Aid & Research Foundation.
