Magna Canada Movember Team member William MacLaughin is a New Technologies and Innovation Intern at NTI.
It is William’s second year participating in Movember! This year he is growing his moustache in support and to raise awareness and funds. William was Mo’tivated to get involved as the male suicide rate is 75%, and he believes men’s mental health should be talked about more.
Movember Fact: Movember has funded Go where men are – Young men, which invests in a number of projects across key settings for young men including education, online/digital and sport. As they looked at scaling their projects globally, they have looked in detail across their portfolio to understand where the best place to reach young men is. After a detailed analysis focusing on desirability, viability and feasibility they focused in on our scalable project(s) within organized sport. The aspiration for the Movember Foundation is to become a clear leader in working with young men within the sport setting. Through this module they believe they can not only improve the overall mental health and wellbeing of young men involved but also develop the community around them to be more supportive and knowledgeable of mental health and wellbeing issues.
Thank you Magna Mo William for joining the Magna Canada Movember team and making a difference in changing men’s health!
