The Movember Foundation seeks applications for mental health programs that will contribute to change at the population level. The Movember Foundation has identified three strategic goals for our mental health programs and research. These are: 1. Men and boys are mentally healthy and take action to remain so 2. When men and boys experience mental health problems they take action early 3. Men and boys with mental health problems are not discriminated against. The Movember Foundation has a specific focus on prevention, early intervention and stigma reduction.
