Thanks to the success of the Movember campaign which began with men growing a ‘stache to raise awareness of prostate and testicular cancers, November has become a month to spotlight men’s health.
This year, Movember commissioned a study of 1430 Canadians on the impact of COVID-19. They found that men were less likely to seek help (49%) from family, friends or other sources as a means to helping them manage the impact of restrictions imposed by COVID-19, compared to women (58 %). The study also revealed that less than half of the men had been approached about how they were coping.
