Men’s Mental Health Awareness Day aims to raise awareness of how signs and symptoms of mental health conditions may present themselves differently in men, and to normalize conversations about mental health issues to reduce the stigma that often prevents men from seeking help. Participants are encouraged to wear bright- or lime-green coloured articles of clothing on that day, and use the #MensMHday hashtag on social media, to show their support.
First proclaimed in the City of Ottawa in 2014, this awareness day is held annually on the Tuesday immediately preceding Father’s Day, during International Men’s Health Week. Check out the backstory on #MensMHday and how it came to be.
