CMHF announces the launch of Move For Your Mental Health

Move For Your Mental Health 2022 encourages men to get active with helpful information and resources offered each week throughout June.

#MOVE4MentalHealth calendar features premiere episode of the Don’t Change Much Podcast, FITFridays video workout series, and resources for health improvement

Vancouver, BC, June 1, 2022 – The Canadian Men’s Health Foundation (CMHF) is proud to announce the launch of Move For Your Mental Health 2022,  a month-long event to raise awareness, educate and drive action for men and their family’s mental well-being. The campaign and podcast are made possible by a generous lead gift from The Jack and Darlene Poole Foundation.

Exercise lowers risks of anxiety and depression and improves cognition, quality of life and physical function—its role is essential to well-being. At least 150 minutes of activity each week benefits both physical and mental health.

Move For Your Mental Health 2022 encourages men to get active with helpful information and resources offered each week throughout June including: the Don’t Change Much Podcast, FITFridays video workouts,  and health improvement tips from the Don’t Change Much blog. 

“We want to educate men about the benefits of physical activity for their mental health,” said CMHF President and CEO, TC Carling. “By normalizing conversations about mental health and providing resources and encouragement, we can help men and their families take action.” 

Don’t Change Much Podcast

The Don’t Change Much Podcast premieres Tuesday, June 7 and features real conversations with athletes, influencers and experts about the big impact of small changes to our physical and mental health. Hosted by Dan Murphy, new episodes air every Tuesday in June.
