REFERRALS FOR BROS

MENTAL HEALTH EMERGENCY CONTACTS

CZECH REPUBLIC

No male-specific mental health services available.

The Czech Republic outlined a plan in 2019 to reform the country’s long-neglected psychiatric care. As the list below shows, most of the current emphasis on mental health support rests large psychiatric institutions/hospitals. The plan is to shift them to a network of mental health centres that would serve patients locally. Up to a third of psychiatric patients could be transferred to the centres by 2030. There is no mental health support or services specifically for men at the time of consolidating this list.

Movember Foundation -  Czech Republic*

Movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, particularly prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide. The Movember Foundation runs the global Movember charity event, housed at Movember.com. The goal of Movember is to "change the face of men's health." By encouraging men (whom the charity refers to as "Mo Bros") to get involved, Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Besides annual check-ups, the Movember Foundation encourages men to find ways to take care of our mental health, and to check in with one another in order to reduce the rate of suicide in men. Visit the link to Czech Republic’s Movember page to access vital information on these three key topics affecting men’s health today: https://cz.movember.com/
