The Work We Fund

Funded projects
Men's Health Partners
We work closely with our global men's health partners to ensure collaboration, transparency and accountability for every project we fund. We monitor this through report cards which detail what we seek to achieve, key measures and the impact.
Prostate Cancer
"Together with the brightest minds in research, we aim to achieve significant breakthroughs in the hope of beating prostate cancer. Our disruptive funding approach identifies revolutionary ways to accelerate health outcomes by creating strong, global collaborative teams." Dr. Colleen Nelson, Global Scientific Chair.
Men's Health
"One Mo can help change the face of men’s health through the powerful conversations created globally during Movember. Men have the chance to confidently discuss men’s health with people around them, resulting in men taking action early, helping change and save lives." Paul Villanti, Executive Director, Programs
Mental health and suicide prevention
“The number of men taking their own lives around the world is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Movember is working to ensure all men and boys look after their mental health and are comfortable to seek help when they’re struggling.”
Brendan Maher, Global Director, Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.
Testicular Cancer
“Despite being the 2nd most common cancer in young men, testicular cancer is often a forgotten cancer due to early detection and treatment. Our projects look at underinvested areas such as improving access to healthcare services and treatment options for relapse” Paul Villanti, Executive Director, Programs.

About the project

The project developed a body of evidence to guide the multi-platform campaign design and implementation through the implementation of three research projects:
1) In My Shoes: A qualitative research project among LGBTI Australians
2) Private Lives Survey 2: Health and wellbeing of people from sexual and gender minorities in Australia
3) A Closer Look at Private Lives 2, containing a deeper analysis of the Private Lives 2 survey
The campaign consists of two components:
a) "Left Handed" Campaign - targeted to 'mainstream' community: used the left handed analogy to present the message that subtle and overt discrimination can have significant health impacts contributing to depression and anxiety among gay, lesbian, bi, trans and intersex people. 
b) Real Life Stories Campaign - targeted to LGBTI communities: a series of six real life stories from individuals from the LGBTI communities about how discrimination has impacted on their mental health. The stories also present each person's process for seeking support for depression or anxiety and their journeys towards recovery.
The campaign was developed with the advice of the beyondblue GLBTI Reference Group, which included expertise from the following areas; beyondblue blueVoices program, clinical services, LGBTI health and research services, community groups,  government agencies, and the peak LGBTI organisation.
