Innovative Initiatives on Improving Men and
Boys Mental Health and Wellbeing

The Movember Foundation and the University of South Florida invite you to submit a proposal to present at the Annual Research and Policy Conference on Child, Adolescent, and Young Adult Behavioral Health . Commonly called the “Tampa Conference,” 2020 will mark the 33 rd year where more than 700 researchers, evaluators, policy makers, administrators, service providers, parents, youth and advocates gather to share cutting-edge research and innovative models and approaches to address behavioral health issues for children, adolescents and adults.

The Movember Foundation and the University of South Florida are sponsoring the Innovative Initiatives on Improving Men and Boys Mental Health and Wellbeing track. This track will focus on prevention and effective interventions aimed at addressing the behavioral health needs of men and boys. Of particular interest are proposals that present research or evaluation that:

  • Consider the interplay of socio-ecological factors that affect the behavioral health of men and boys.
  • Focus on policy, community, interpersonal or individual level factors affecting male mental wellbeing, including the role of masculinity and gendered norms.
  • Presents research and evaluation approaches/metrics assessing the impact of the factors above, as well as approaches and metrics assessing the outcome of male centered programs.
