Mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer – we’re taking them all on.

Since 2003, with money raised by the Movember community, we've funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects.

From game-changing mental health initiatives that straight-up save lives to global breakthroughs in cancer research and treatment – this is where the money goes.

1. Delivering mental fitness training for young athletes

Thanks to funds raised via Spud’s Game - a match dedicated to honouring the late St Kilda legend Danny Frawley - our flagship mental fitness program Ahead of The Game has been delivered to over 40 teams and 1,100 people through a ground-breaking partnership with St Kilda Football Club and the Danny Frawley Centre.

2. Funding a new prostate cancer drug

At Movember we love supporting game-changing research. So, we were stoked to hear that the Australian Federal Government announced that Medicare will fund PSMA PET scans for men with intermediate to high-risk prostate cancer. The scans help doctors determine whether a man’s prostate cancer has spread to other parts of the body.

3. Better conversations

Men sometimes aren’t comfortable reaching out about challenges they’re facing. Our new digital tool gives you the confidence to have better conversations with the men in your life who may be struggling. Try it here

4. Improving men’s social connections

Through our Social Connections Challenge, we’re funding Man Cave TV, a video platform that provides teenage boys with the tools to build their emotional intelligence, social connectedness and improve their relationships. Find out more

5. Tackling testicular cancer

Testicular cancer is a lot to deal with. We recruited a team of guides from all over the world – guys who have had testicular cancer before – and given them training on how to listen, be supportive and have your back. Check out Nuts & Bolts

6. Supporting men to be better dads

Movember’s Family Man is the world’s first parenting program designed with dads in mind. It helps men tackle the kicking, screaming and WTF moments of being a dad. Try it here

7. More online mental health support

We’ve teamed up with digital mental health community platform Togetherall, to create male-friendly resources and encourage more men around the world to access free online mental health support 24/7. Find out more

8. Improving prostate cancer care

Over 136,000 men from Australia and New Zealand have joined the Prostate Cancer Outcomes Registry Australia and New Zealand to help doctors identify what’s working well for men with prostate cancer (and what isn’t) so that care can be improved for all men. Tell me more

9. Speeding up clinical trials

New prostate cancer treatments could reach men sooner, thanks to a Movember-supported project that aims to speed up clinical trials by two years. Find out more

10. Better training for therapists

Half of men who die by suicide have been in contact with mental health services before their death. Our experts are developing and trialing an online training course called Men In Mind for therapists to ensure all men and boys who reach out for mental health support get the best possible treatment.
