Start Conversations. Save Lives
Top 5 Things To Know & Do
Stay connected with the people who make you feel good. Your mates are important so catch up regularly, check in and make the time.
You don't need to be an expert and you don't have to be the sole solution, but being there for someone, listening and giving your time can be life-saving.
At 50, talk to your doctor about prostate cancer and whether its right for you to have a PSA test. If you are of African or Caribbean descent or have a father or brother with prostate cancer, you should be having this conversation at 45. Know your risk, talk to you doctor.
Get to know what's normal for your testicles. Give them a check regularly and go to the doctor if something doesn't feel right.
Add more activity to your day. Do more of what makes you feel good.
Taking a walk, park further away from the station, get off the bus a stop or two earlier, take the stairs instead of the lift, and cycle to work instead of driving.
Meet Our Ambassadors
This year we’re working together with our Mo bro friends over at Movember to raise awareness, raise funds and start conversations about men’s health. To get the ball rolling we have hand picked 5 POLITIX staff members to be our Movember ambassadors. We have selected an ambassador from each state across Australia that has a connection to the cause. Get ready to meet our Mo bros and Mo sistas!
Sunshine Plaza Sales Consultant, QLD
As someone who has suffered from a mental illness, I’ve been lucky to receive support as a young woman. Unfortunately, the stigma around mental illness in men means that many don’t seek support, and as someone who believes in equality between the sexes, I feel that I can help advocate for men seeking and receiving support and reducing the stigma around mental illness, as well as seeking support for all health issues.
Uni Hill Sales Consultant, VIC
My dad’s sickness has taught me a different level of empathy and being part of the movement that benefits people in similar situations as my dad, makes both me and would have made him very happy.
Bankstown Manager, NSW
After losing two very close members of my family last year to cancer, I have a strong connection to the relevance and importance of bringing awareness to people about the great fundraising and research done by the Movember foundation. As a spokesperson, I strive to bring my unique and charismatic personality to shed a light on these terrible illnesses and hopefully make my own personal impact on men’s health.
Carousel Manager, WA
Movember is something I’m passionate about, particularly men’s mental health. Too often men are the ‘shoulders we cry on’. Yet, in doing so they lose their own shoulder, and forget their own well-being to help others. Though it is such a selfless act, the men who want to be perceived as tough, could be dealing with a lot on the inside. I want to be a part of the movement, to change the way society thinks. It gives me such happiness that the brand I work for, the POLITIX family I am in, plays such a big part in this movement, and I hope in some way, I can be a part of that.
Harbourtown Manager, SA
In my family and in many others, men don’t talk about their health - physical or mental. Being a “man” is defined by being the alpha and never expressing how you feel. I want to change this stigma because if the men in my life had someone to encourage them to take care of their health and well-being, they might still be here today.
