Why you should be aware of international men’s day 2018

My Times Today. Every year, international men’s day is commemorated worldwide to shine a spotlight on men who are making a positive difference and to raise awareness of issues that men face on a global scale.

With suicide being the biggest killer of men under the age of 45, according to charity calm, encouraging people to have open conversations about topics such as men’s mental health and male suicide is essential.

International Men’s Day is celebrated annually on 19 November.

The date coincides with the birthday of the father of Dr Jerome Teelucksingh, a doctor from Trinidad and Tobago who relaunched International Men’s Day in 1999.

Despite the existence of the global event over the past two decades, there are many who don’t realise that the day exists, and some who oppose the notion of international women’s day which takes place on 8 March.
