     Movember? Don’t you mean, ‘November’? Nope. Mo(ustaches) in (No)vember, gives us ‘Movember’, which is a global event to encourage men to grow (bad) moustaches each November to raise money for men’s health. Many men in Western cultures don’t go to the doctor to check their health, and especially avoid getting help for mental health concerns, thinking that they don’t want to seem ‘weak’. There is a growing global movement saying that the strong decision is to get help and to stand with people who do. We’ve decided to do our bit in Korea, but to focus on mental health for everyone. This is an issue all over the world, and Korea is a good example of a place where there is a serious lack of mental health awareness and support. These problems are felt by people of all ages, from youth all the way up to the elderly, with some very sad statistics coming out of Korea about suicide rates in people ranging from young to old. There is no shame in seeking help and an open and sharing culture about mental health should be actively promoted.

     We have found a mental health charity based here in Korea that could really do with a financial boost to help them to help people with mental health issues. This could honestly save lives, so please chip in (give) a few cheon won to contribute. We know you are students and are not rich, but please skip one coffee or pack a cheap lunch one day because that is all it takes to make a big difference in the lives of people who are in need of some care and support. If you can grow a ‘mo’ and join the ‘mo bros’ then we’d love you to come and join us, too!
