Happy International Men's Day 2021! International Men’s Day is an annual event celebrating the achievements of men around the world and their contribution to society. One of the main reasons this commemoration day came up was to tackle the problem of male suicide. It was felt that men were extremely vulnerable to threats like shorter life expectancy, violence, workspace deaths and mental trauma, in order to encourage them and lift up their spirits. The man behind the IMD celebration is Thomas Oaster, who came up with the idea in 1992. The celebrations were revived in 1999 by Dr Jerome Teelucksingh in Trinidad and Tobago.
