Movember kicks off next week.
One man around the world dies by suicide every minute – that’s over half a million fathers, partners, brothers and friends each year. In an effort to encourage healthy conversations about mental health, Movember have launched Lockdown, Shave Down, Get Down.
The men’s health charity is teaming up with stylist Lawson Mpame, broadcaster Darren Kennedy, rugby player Harry McNulty, Men’s Circle facilitator Darragh Stewart and high performance coach Pat Divily, to help men take positive steps towards speaking up about their struggles.
“I am honoured to be a Movember ambassador this year,” says Lawson. “The incredible guys who are part of this community helped me at a time when I needed it most, and when I was at my lowest point in life. So it’s truly amazing that I can do my part to help stop men dying young – especially at the difficult time we are currently living in.”
Every year, participants around the world help Movember to make a real difference in mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
