For a lot of Aussie men, life gets busy and they lose touch with their mates. That leaves millions of Aussies feeling isolated, which can lead to loneliness and depression. The more we catch up, the better our self-esteem is, and our chances of getting depressed drop significantly. Right now, 75% of suicides in Australia are men, so the need to hang out is real.

That’s why the Movember Foundation are proud to bring you a new men’s health initiative: MAYEIGHT!! The date to catch up with a mate.

So grab a burger, play that game of golf, go fishing - whatever. Just catch up with a mate, on May 8.


Get 2 for 1 burgers on at Grill’d on May 8. Just bring a mate and say ‘MAAATE’ at the counter.


To really show your support and raise awareness, take the MAYEIGHT!! challenge on Facebook, by recording our signature video call-to-arms.


Record a video of yourself saying: ‘I’m about to say mate for MAYEIGHT!!’ then yell ”Maaaaaaaate!” as long as you can.

Post the video to Facebook, being sure to tag the mate you’re challenging and tag #MAYEIGHT.


We'll keep you up to date with all things MAYEIGHT!!
