Movember: Men's Health Month

Sign with 4 moustache shapes saying Movember and scissors and comb beside it.

Movember brings awareness to men's health, especially in the areas of prostate or testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention.

Men tend to stay silent especially about their personal issues. Movember originated when two friends were inspired by the moustache's ability to generate conversation. Deciding to take it a step further, they developed a month dedicated to bringing awareness to men's health needs. Characterized by a month of avoiding a razor, men show their support by growing moustaches and beards to raise funds to provide healthcare for other males.

For the men in your life, please encourage them to see their healthcare providers to discuss their care needs including prostate health and mental health. At ISH, we're proud to offer services to keep all of the men in our lives healthy and thriving. Discover more by visiting our website.
