Mental health problems can affect anyone. Although men are just as likely to experience mental ill health as women, they are three times more likely to die by suicide.
Men are less likely to ask for help, talk about their worries or get support. Something has to change.
Sports clubs including Bristol Bears, Bristol City and Bristol Rovers along with local services near you have joined forces to raise awareness of issues facing men’s well-being and to support the Movember 2018 campaign. Take our quiz to find out how to improve your mental health and be in with a chance of winning signed balls, shirts, tickets and much more.
