Movember 2022: let’s change the conversation on men’s mental health


We know the power of social connection – but too many of us feel like there's no one to turn to. Let's change that.

Connecting with others and having a network of people we can relate to can’t be underestimated. In fact, sharing our stories and personal experiences is proven to help us feel less alone – and ultimately reduce the stigma of mental health concerns.

This is why Contiki is partnering with Movember this year to bring together men who are vocalising their views and experiences in the male mental health space. Together we’re discussing the importance of connecting with our peers and opening up on the issues that matter most. In doing so, we can help change attitudes and encourage others to seek help when they need it most.

What is Movember?

Movember is a leading global men’s health charity. They are leaders in disrupting the status quo and millions of Mo Bros and Sisters have joined the movement to help fundraise and raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer, as well as suicide prevention.

This November, there are four ways to get involved:

1. Grow a moustache. Wispy. Handlebar. Sinister cartoon villain. No matter how your mo turns out, you can sign up to raise vital funds for men’s health.

2. Run or walk 60km in a month. Why 60k? Because we lose 60 men ever hour to suicide, across the world.

3. Host a mo-ment. Whether it’s a party, a sporting event or both, hosting a mo-ment is a great way to get your mates involved in the mo-vement.

4. Mo your own way! Want to grow a 4-foot beard instead of a mo? Got another wildcard idea that’s just so crazy it might work? It’s fine to mo your own way, too!
