Movember is hosting its first-ever BIPOC Mental Health Week

BIPOC Mental Health Week

In the US – and around the globe – right now, we’re facing a mental health crisis. From violent racial injustice to Covid-19, some of us are feeling more angry and alone than ever before. In response to this, men’s health and suicide prevention charity Movember is hosting BIPOC Mental Health Week. This week will highlight the dialogue about the unique challenges for black, indigenous and men of color when it comes to mental health and wellbeing.  

Join Movember on facebook.com/MovemberUSA from September 15 2020 for a week of virtual panel discussions with notable guests, experts and people with lived experience or who work in the mental health space.

This week of virtual panel discussions sees Movember aiming to create safe spaces for healthy dialogues with experts and people who have lived experience or work in the mental health space. And here’s the schedule for the week:
