Movember Canada is accepting video applications for their Men’s Health Innovation Challenge. So the Fathers’ Mental Health Network got together and created the Shoulder to Shoulder Project. This proposal uses a general way men communicate with each other (shoulder to shoulder, meaning while engaged in activity) to facilitate greater conversations about mental health. We continue to focus on fathers as a window into men’s health, because that is the group we are most familiar with at the present time.

We will know November 1st, whether or not we are successful in winning the grant. Wish us luck and hopefully we will see you wearing a Shoulder Patch in support of Fathers’ Mental Health in the near future. Remember, healthy fathers lead to healthy families.
