MEN’S MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS DAY:

This was a big year for #MensMHDay (the Tuesday of Men’s Health Week), receiving national support from The Mental Health Commission of Canada and the Canadian Mental Health Association (official press release). Thanks to the Vancouver Mayor’s Office and Councillor Kerry Jang, the day was officially proclaimed by the City of Vancouver for the third year in a row.

A special thanks to Jean-François Claude, mental health advocate, for championing this intuitive going.

MATCHING DONATIONS CAMPAIGN:

This year’s Men’s Health Week campaign also included a fundraising drive as local Vancouver business owners and philanthropists, the Newell Family, stepped up to match all donations up to $100,000 in June.

Originally set to end June 30th, The Newell family has generously extended the deadline until July 31st 2018, allowing us to reach closer to our goal of $100,000!

Together, we can help the men in our lives and prevent more tragic losses of life to suicide. Join the HeadsUpGuys fundraising effort by making a donation.
