Link – Men much less likely to seek mental health help than women

“Men are far less likely to seek medical support for a mental health problem than women, new figures reveal.

A survey commissioned by the Mental Health Foundation found that not only are men far less likely than women to seek professional support, they are also less likely to disclose a mental health problem to friends and family.”

Guys, we have to be better than this. We are losing too many men to continue trying to “tough it out” when it comes to depression. Talking to those around you, and seeking appropriate help is not weakness. It’s brave, and it’s the manly thing to do, to get better and be there for your family and friends down the road instead of just being another suicide statistic.
