My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Mental health and suicide prevention
Men's health

Globally, the rate of suicide is alarmingly high, particularly in men. Too many men are ‘toughing it out’, keeping their feelings to themselves and struggling in silence. Help me stop men dying too young.

My name is Tim McCarthy and I'm the host of the podcast 20TIMinutes. It's a show that focuses on mental health, through humor, insight & personal stories. This show stems from my long battle with mental health or the lack thereof. As a mental health advocate and someone diagnosed with mental illnesses (Bipolar II, ADHD & general anxiety), I'm looking to raise money and awareness for mental health and suicide prevention. I'll also be doing this by growing my Mo, and giving up sweets & alcohol for the month of Movember!

For quite sometime in my adult life, I knew something was mentally off with me and I just wanted that pain to go away, forever. On May 5th, 2019 I almost attempted to take my own life via hanging, but fortunately enough, I did not succeed in my plan. After that, I knew it was time to get professional help. I felt a lot of shame with my diagnoses, but with the help of friends, coworkers, family, medication, doctors and therapists, I came to terms with my disorders. Since then I've wanted to help as many people as I could that also suffered alone with mental health issues. Nothing is worse than being alone when you're going through tough times. We all need to look out for one another, but we also need to make sure we're looking out for ourselves.

So to my Mo Bros & Mo Sisters, please help me and the Movember family by donating on behalf of mental health, as well as prostate cancer & testicular cancer. Lets all break the stigma, by cracking a smile!
