Although the offical day for International Men's Day is Wednesday of this week, at NUSU we are holding the day on the Friday, so we can tie up with the weekly Men's Bar event- "Expresso Yourself" (an afternoon of live acoustic singers). 
 
On the day, there will be a tent set up outside the Students' Union from 11am until 3pm with lots of different information on men's mental health. The whole event will be focused around that, as our Gender Equality Officer decided there needed to be a campaign on this, as there are devistating statistics relating to men and suicide. 
 
Change UR Mind and Young Minds along with other charities will be holding stalls inside the tent, and there will also be a chance to get some great prizes from the raffle. There will also be a moustache photobooth competition (with it being Movember of course!), but those without one do not fear, we will have some for you to wear and be silly with! 
 
From 3pm, the acoustic set will play inside Men's Bar, which is a compeltely free event, however there will be donation boxes for anyone who would like to donate to mental health charities. 
 
This will go on until 7pm and from then, there will be a Slam Poetry event. For more info, keep an eye out on my social media (https://www.facebook.com/NUSUWelfare and @NUSUwelfare)
