Move for Your Mental Health

Let’s move together this June and help inspire men and their families to take care of their mental health and live healthier year-round.

What is Move For Your Mental Health?

Move For Your Mental Health 2022 is a month-long event to raise awareness, educate and drive action for men and their family’s mental well-being. The goal is to encourage men to get active with helpful information and resources offered each week from the Don’t Change Much Podcast, FITFridays video workouts, and health improvement tips from the Don’t Change Much blog.

Move For Your Mental Health 2022 and the Don’t Change Much Podcast are made possible by a generous lead gift from The Jack and Darlene Poole Foundation.
