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
“We’re alarmed by the increasing number of men who take their own lives around the world. We are working to ensure all men and boys look after their mental health and are comfortable to reach out to others for support when they’re struggling.” 
Craig Martin, Global Director - Mental Health & Suicide Prevention programs
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 aim of this project is to use sport as a coordinated national vehicle to promote mental health and reduce the risk of mental health problems. The outcome of this project will be a comprehensive, innovative and coordinated intervention undertaken within a highly engaging medium that can be sustainably translated through our research partners - some of the leading peak national sporting bodies - in order to make a real and significant impact on the mental health of the adolescent male population in Australia. 
This will be achieved through five key project components:

  • Club-Based Promotional Campaign to Improve Awareness and Attitudes towards Mental Health Problems.
  • Coach Training Program.
  • Adolescent Mental Health Literacy Program. 
  • Parent Program.
  • Adolescent Wellbeing Program.
