Thanks to the organization Movember, November is now a month dedicated to focusing on the mental and physical health of men. Movember hosts an annual event where people grow mustaches to raise awareness for men’s health issues such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s suicide. According to the organization, men die on average five years earlier than women, and across the world men account for 69% of all suicides.
