#MensHealthWeek #MensMHDay

This June we divided our promotions into 5 parts. Our goal was reach as many people as possible, challenge the stereotypes that prevent many men from reaching out, and provide men and their supporters with the tools to fight depression.

Men's Health Week takes place annually in mid-June, during the week preceding Father’s Day. The week is not just a campaign, but a call to action for men to take better care of their health and for communities to support men in this endeavour.
