International Men’s Day
According to data from the World Health Organization (WHO), suicide is the leading cause of death for men aged under forty-five. This is true in many countries around the world, including Australia, the USA, Russia, and the USA. Statistics show that women are more likely than men to be diagnosed with depression, but men are more likely suicide. Cultural conditioning and the role of role models are all factors. While women may consider ending their lives, men are more likely than men to do so, often in violent ways. This speaks volumes about the mental health, psychology, and attitudes of men in our communities. Boys are taught from a young age that boys are boys and they don’t cry. It is a common sensibility that can be found in many cultures across the globe. It is a sensibility that is found in many cultures around the world. In addition to the Caribbean initiative, there are now independent celebrations in many countries, including Australia, India and the United Kingdom. It is not necessary to observe this day in a particular way. Any organization can host it, and any forum may be used. International Men’s Day aims to raise awareness about mental illness and other social issues. If vulnerable men want to be protected, the traditional notions of masculinity are changing. These qualities include kindness, generosity and inner strength. They also need to be open and honest with others. International Men’s Day, and the month of November, is an excellent opportunity in our global culture to present the true face of masculinity to those who need to see it.There are many high-profile men now embracing International Men’s Day, opening up channels of communication and taking responsibility for presenting this new wave of masculinity.International Men’s Day encourages men to teach the boys in their lives the values, character and responsibilities of being a man. Mahatma Gandhi stated, “We must be the change that we seek.” The month of November has many events that are relevant to the masculine soul. We focus on men’s health by supporting the modern tradition of growing moustaches during Movember. You will find many people updating their profiles and sharing donations opportunities on any social media site during November. This day allows men to share their experiences and contribute to improving the lives of other men. Recognizing the differences between men & women is crucial and catering to their needs is key. However, IMD and IWD are not exclusive events. Men and women can celebrate these events if they wish to raise awareness, contribute to our collective well-being, and educate more people about these issues.
