Movember - making a difference in mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer!
Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends face a health crisis that isn’t being talked about.
Men are dying too young.
We can’t afford to stay silent.
This month all across WorkPac Group we are taking action and raising awareness on Men’s Health and some of the biggest health issues being faced by men, being; prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health and suicide prevention.
It’s as simple as seeing your GP and arranging a routine blood test! – We encourage you to ask about PSA testing and arrange an examination if you notice any changes as early detection can lead to better health outcomes.
We are proud to promote the Movember charity and encourage all our employees to become involved with the various events being run throughout the month, such as; ‘Grow a Mo’, ‘Move for Movember’ or ‘Host a Mo-ment’ please visit the website here https://au.movember.com/about/foundationto find out more about these great fund raising and awareness programs you can become involved with.
