Men & Mental Health

The current climate for men’s mental health has come to a critical point in history, where national strategies need to be made to address the increasing number of men who are experiencing mental health-related challenges. As a society, stigmas associated with mental health are prevalent and common. Men face the added stigma that seeking help for mental health is a sign of weakness, or that ‘real men’ don't need help. This can lead many men to find that they can not find the places for help that women often do especially from their partners, government agencies or website admins.

Men are considered more likely to lose families, kids and their lives both from work and by their own hands. They can also be more likely to be homeless and over looked or demonized by society and may find it harder to be comfortable seeking help for physical issues such as prostate issues, which is the most common form of cancer in men.

Movements like movember (grow a mo to save a bro) during November and international men's day on November 19th help to raise awareness of this problem.
