It’s okay to feel blue…
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.
We believe in the power of bringing people together through amazing travel experiences. Just 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 to bring together a group of 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.
Follow us on International Men’s Day this 19 November and beyond to discover stories and resources on male mental health…
What is Movember?
Movember is a leading global men’s health charity. They’re leaders in disrupting the status quo and millions have joined the movement to help fundraise and raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer, as well as suicide prevention.
This November, there are three ways to get involved:
1. Grow a moustache to help inspire donations and conversations around men’s mental health
2. Run or walk 60km in a month and ask your friends and family to sponsor you
3. Host a mo-ment and get together with your friends or community
