Mental Health Issues In Men

Mental disorders is a major challenge for anyone to cope with, especially when it comes to men.

Men’s are no different from it. They too suffer from depression, anxiety and a range of mental health issues.

Hectic schedules, unwanted work pressure, familial responsibilities, limited earning opportunities, etc. add more to their stress level. It is sad that men are made to feel weak by exhibiting their feelings.

Mental health experts believe that men are more prone to mental illness. The Men’s Health Forum stated that 4 in 5 suicides are by men, which is the biggest cause of death in men under 35.

Battling a mental illness takes resilience, strength, and willpower. So, if someone battling or have survived from cancer are heroes, then why not someone recovered from mental illness too be considered heroes?
