MEN'S HEALTH WEEK 2021: HEY, GUYS! YOUR VOICE COUNTS TOO!: Male Mental Health

HEY, GUYS! YOUR VOICE COUNTS TOO!:
Male
Mental Health


MEN'S HEALTH WEEK 2021
 

This is Men's Health Week and health includes mental health. It's really important that those identifying as male have just as much opportunity as anyone else to access support, talking therapies and a listening ear (and be understood and validated too).

We often forget about this and many men experience unhelpful and exasperating comments such as 'Boys don't cry', 'Man up', Come on, be the big man' and 'why would you feel like that...don't be a girl!'

Argggh! Why is is OK for females to talk about how they feel, but not men? Well, actually IT IS OK for boys and men to talk about how they feel. Actually, it's not just OK, we want to hear what things are like for you. You ARE IMPORTANT and what you are experiencing IS IMPORTANT!

Talking and sharing your thoughts and feelings can not only help you, it can help other guys start taking and having conversations too. The more guys that open up about their own mental health, the more we all understand too.

Guys, whether you are feeling sad, anxious, scared, fearful, worried, stressed, having relationship problems, experiencing grief or just want to talk about what you are thinking and feeling, the world wants to hear!

With male suicide rates increasing, never has it been more important to hear your voices.

If you identify as male and are finding things difficult - no matter how big or small that may seem, we urge you to get help and support as soon as you can - please do talk to someone if you are feeling this way (there's some links to psychotherapy, CBT and counselling below). Male voices count too.

All the best,

Alexandra....
