International Men's Day

International Men's Day is celebrated annually on 19th November to raise awareness about the issues that men face and to recognise their contributions to society. The day aims to promote gender equality, improve gender relations, and highlight positive male role models.

The theme for International Men's Day 2023 is “Zero Male Suicide”, which focuses on helping men and boys to manage their mental health. Men are often taught to suppress their emotions and not seek help, which can lead to higher rates of depression, anxiety, and suicide. By raising awareness about this issue, International Men's Day hopes to encourage men to prioritise their mental health and seek help when needed.

The day also focuses on issues such as toxic masculinity, fatherhood, and men's health. By starting conversations and promoting understanding, International Men's Day aims to create a more inclusive and supportive society for men.

Overall, International Men's Day is an important opportunity to recognise the contributions of men to society, while also addressing the challenges that they face. It is a reminder that gender equality is not just about women's rights, but about creating a world where everyone can thrive.
