International Men’s Day is dedicated to the powers that be! Celebrated on November 19 around the world. The perfect date to focus on men’s health! The World Health Organization publishes disappointing statistics that say that one of the main causes of male deaths is suicide.
With regards to the above: the reasons for suicide appear in different directions. Gender, role models, social pressure are the most common of them. Women also think about it, however, with a greater degree of probability, it is men who bring the matter to the end. Boys are told from birth that they should not cry and show that they are in pain. Because of this, already adult men mask their pain from others, as they were taught.
Since 1999, the holiday has been celebrated with various events, forums, conferences, peaceful marches, exhibitions … This happens in many states. The founder of the day is Professor Thomas Oaster, who decided to involve society in topical issues. In 2009, a committee for the International Day was formed.
