Redefining Strength: A Campaign for Men and Boys

Movember Campaign for Men and Boys

The Movember campaign was a community grassroots campaign that relied upon men and boys as influencers in mental health. Images of men and boys in our community were featured in the campaign by growing a beard to symbolize our collective action that it's okay to talk about mental health.
