Getting Help for Men’s Mental Health
As you probably already know, there is a lot of stigma with getting help for men’s mental health. Therefore, I am sharing a website mantherapy.org that uses humor to address the very serious topic of men’s mental health including depression and suicidal thoughts.
Here are some statistics:
Did you know that working aged men (25-54 years old) account for the largest number of suicide deaths in the U.S? These men are also the least likely to receive any kind of support. They don’t talk about it with their friends. They don’t share with their family. And they sure as heck don’t seek professional treatment. They are the victims of problematic thinking that says mental health disorders are unmanly signs of weakness.
Here is an assessment to see where you stand:
Below is a link that is called 20-point head inspection. It is an assessment that can be taken by anyone (men and/or their loved ones) to get a run down of how you excel and where you can improve your mental health. This assessment is free, its confidential, is scientifically validated. Check it out:
What to do and where to get help for your mental health:
If you are a man or are someone who cares about a man’s mental health, I highly recommend that you explore this website mantherapy.org. And believe it or not, men account for more that 50% of the patients that I see in my mental health counseling practice. Click here for more about me and to make and appointment.
