Today, November 19, is International Men’s Day.
Yes, I know – in our culture, every day can feel like international men’s day. And yet, while it would be easy to denigrate the need for a day that celebrates all things male, delve a little deeper, and perhaps it’s not such an outlandish idea.
International Men’s Day, after all, celebrates the positive value men bring to the world, their families and communities. The aim is to highlight positive male role models, and to raise awareness of men’s wellbeing. And given male suicide reached a two-decade high in England and Wales this year, the 2020 theme of ‘better health for men and boys’ has arguably never been more critical.
