Men's Health Partners
"We work closely with our global men's health partners to ensure collaboration, transparency and accountability for every project we fund. We monitor this through report cards which detail what we seek to achieve, key measures and the impact." - Owen Sharp, CEO
Prostate Cancer
"Together with the brightest minds in research, we aim to achieve significant breakthroughs in the hope of beating prostate cancer. Our disruptive funding approach identifies revolutionary ways to accelerate health outcomes by creating strong, global collaborative teams." Dr. Colleen Nelson, Global Scientific Chair.
Men's Health
"One Mo can help change the face of men’s health through the powerful conversations created globally during Movember. Men have the chance to confidently discuss men’s health with people around them, resulting in men taking action early, helping change and save lives." Paul Villanti, Executive Director, Programs
Mental health and suicide prevention
“The number of men taking their own lives around the world is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Movember is working to ensure all men and boys look after their mental health and are comfortable to seek help when they’re struggling.”
Brendan Maher, Global Director, Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.
Testicular Cancer
“Despite being the 2nd most common cancer in young men, testicular cancer is often a forgotten cancer due to early detection and treatment. Our projects look at underinvested areas such as improving access to healthcare services and treatment options for relapse” Paul Villanti, Executive Director, Programs.

About the project

The core of the project is the development and broadcasting of a three part documentary on male mental health. The documentary will explore the relationship between masculinity and mental health, doing so via a presenter-led journey. The documentary will have a campaign feel to it, and males from across Australia will be encouraged to contribute their views and experiences via social media. The impact on males in community will be evaluated in three parts: a randomised controlled trial of the documentary; secondary analysis of data from Ten to Men (the Australian Longitudinal Study on Male Health); and a novel exploration of social media content.

The documentary will be broadcasted on public television. This far-reaching medium has the potential to significantly raise awareness about some of the mental health issues that particularly affect males, including, for example: suicide, drug and alcohol problems, social isolation and a relative reluctance to seek help. Beyond the viewing experience men (and women) will be able to access additional information via an associated website, and engage with the programme and share their own experiences via social media. The social media aspect is important because it will create a heightened level of engagement and increase the impact in terms of rethinking social roles and changing behaviour.

This project is overseen by an Advisory Committee which brings together a unique combination of expertise in male health, mental health, research and evaluation.
