“Talking about mental health is the first step to eliminating the negative stereotype around it — but for men, this can be particularly challenging.
Approximately 6 million American men have depression each year, yet research shows many are reluctant to disclose their mental illness symptoms and are averse to seeking treatment. This is a dangerous trend considering mental health issues have the potential to lead to suicide — an act that results in more than 40,000 deaths in the United States each year.”
This cannot continue. Something has to change, somehow we have to make it easier for anyone who needs help to find a way to get it, without stigma, and without shame.
