Men are simply dying too young from prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and suicide. Though these issues are critical, they are not often discussed among men. However, by taking preventative steps that and identifying help and support, the probability of men living longer increases.
Breaking the ice on this topic is the first step to encouraging education and proactivity, which can result in early detection, less premature death, and an improved climate in men’s health overall.
Phi Kappa Psi is committed to ensuring their members feel empowered and supported to be the healthiest versions of themselves. This is why participating in Movember each fall is so important.
The Movember Foundation has made tremendous progress since their founding in 2003 to empower men to take better care of themselves with one simple goal: To stop the epidemic of men dying too young. Phi Kappa Psi will continue supporting this mission by giving our community the tools it needs to improve their quality of life, encouraging open conversations, and educating all men about the facts. Though Movember only happens annually during the month of November, it encourages everyday lifestyle changes.
Early detection is an important factor in treating prostate and testicular cancers. Understanding when something isn’t right is important. They want every member to know that they are not alone, and Phi Kappa Psi encourages you to take care of YOURSELF.

So why have they been so silent after all? they owe it to themselves, Phi Kappa Psi brothers, fathers, role models and friends to start conversations.
