During the month of November, men all over the world grow a mustache to bring awareness and action to men's health. inBalance and the City of Springfield will also be participating in this awareness campaign, also known as, Movember.

Men's Health Statistics:

  • 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime.
  • Testicular cancer is highly treatable if caught early, but an estimated 380 men will still die from it this year.
  • The highest rates of depression occur among men 40-59 years old.
  • On average, 87 men in the US die by suicide. Every. Day.
