Movember

About Movember

Join us every November as we support the focus on men’s health by promoting “Movember”. The Movember movement has really taken flight with a broader focus on men’s health, beyond the “Grow your Mo” challenge. This campaign raises awareness globally around prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s mental health.

If you are looking or someone to talk to, or for support, help is available.

Be sure to check out some of the great activities happening around campus in support of Movember!

Movember at Brandon University

Everyone Eats — Nov. 18, 19 and 20

Everyone Eats is a partnership with the John Howard Society, providing hot, chef-inspired meals at a pay-what-you-can price. Available three days a week, Everyone Eats supports food security and reduces stigma. For Movember, we are working with Everyone Eats to support men’s mental health awareness.

It’s always a good week to order from Everyone Eats, and participating on Nov. 18, 19 and 20 will also include valuable Movember and men’s mental health information.

Moustache cronuts — Nov. 18

Cronuts are a delicious combination of doughnut and croissant. The pastry chefs at BU’s Harvest Hall are creating special Movember cronuts adorned with a moustache, so you can savour the occasion. Stop by Harvest Hall on Wednesday, Nov. 18 for Moustache Cronut Day.

Many studies have shown that men don’t want to talk about mental health. New research done at Brandon University, through the Centre for Critical Studies of Rural Mental Health, suggests that a growing number of me do want to talk about it.
