Movember at Splash Damage

November 20, 2019

This month we’re celebrating both Movember and International Men’s Day.

If you checked out our update about Wellbeing Week you’ll know that Mental Health is something that we’re striving to talk about more and to normalise.

To that end, this past month we’ve been celebrating Movember — a charity cause raising awareness around both Men’s health and mental health. We made two videos, akin to our International Women’s Day videos, to highlight these issues.

We’re incredibly fortunate to have people in the studio willing to talk about these important issues so candidly.

If you’re affected by any of the issues raised in these videos, there are a number of resources available for you:

NHS Mental Health Services

Samaritans – Crisis Helpline

MIND – Mental Health Support

CALM – Campaign Against Living Miserably
