Consider these important statistics:

  • Globally, male life expectancy lags 5 years behind female life expectancy.

  • Men have a more than 40% chance of dying between 50 and 74, compared to women at 30%.

  • The global suicide rate in men is almost twice that of women.

  • Male depression and body image disorders are significantly under-diagnosed and untreated.

We Care So Take Care of Yourself Letters

Everyone needs a kick to go see their doctor for a checkup sometimes -students take on this role to remind men they care for to go take care of themselves with an annual prostate exam, etc.
