November at CSU is the start of our Movember campaign which aims to raise awareness, reduce the stigma and start conversations to address mens health.
VP Activities, Daniel Forrester and VP Warrington, Sam Derbyshire have planned a month-long campaign of events, activities and creative content to share with male-identifying students at the University of Chester. The campaign aims to cover all topics to educate and support males including: mental health and mindfulness, suicide prevention, testicular cancer, inspirational male figures in society and challenging the stereotypes of masculinity.
There are so many ways to be involved with the Movember campaign, check out some of the main events!
