Celebrating Strength & Well-being on International Men’s Day 2023!
To the fathers, the brothers, the sons and our friends: Happy International Men’s Day!
This year there is an emphasis on such a critical theme: ‘ZERO MALE SUICIDE.’
This year’s focus is not just on celebration but also on equipping communities with proactive strategies to prevent male suicides.
Let’s celebrate the positive contributions of men to society while initiating crucial conversations around mental health and well-being. We must take proactive steps in supporting men’s mental health, advocating for open dialogue, and creating a robust support network.
Here are some key tips for suicide prevention:
- Encourage Open Conversations: Normalize talking about feelings and mental health.
- Prioritise Mental Well-being: Seek professional support without hesitation.
- Cultivate Connections: Strengthen support networks through community engagement.
- Spread Awareness: Educate and break down the barriers surrounding mental health discussions.
- Take Proactive Steps: Regular check-ins can be life-saving.
This International Men’s Day, we stand committed to fostering a world where every man feels supported and valued. The aim is to build a community where seeking help is a sign of strength and where ‘ZERO MALE SUICIDE’ is not just a goal but a reality.
In order to achieve this, the Renewal Programme is excited to announce:
A supportive space for men from diverse backgrounds to connect, share experiences, and build lasting friendships. Our group promotes a sense of belonging, improved well-being, and the opportunity to learn and grow together. We offer a variety of activities and discussions to enhance communication skills and boost self-confidence, making it a welcoming community for all.
Join us in this crucial initiative and help make a difference. Together, we can save lives and create a world of support and understanding.
