Why do men not seek mental health?
According to research, about 77% of men suffer from common mental health problems like anxiety and depression. And because of the stigma surrounding men’s mental health, there are very few who seek help for it.
But why? What are some reasons men shy away from talking about emotional trauma? In this article, we’ll talk about the stigma surrounding men’s mental health and how the AAF can help them.
Stigmas around men’s mental health
The most important reason not to seek help for mental health issues is the belief that men in society do not go through emotional trauma. Men and boys should not look weak and such mental problems will make them look weak.
Most of the men also don’t talk about their mental health because most of the time they don’t have anyone to share it with or they don’t want their loved ones to burden their emotional issues. Some men are even embarrassed while others learn to deal with it or ignore it. While many people think that they do not need any support.
But this is not always the issue, with most men revealing their mental health issues to someone at some point in life. At that point either it gets too serious or the one they enjoy didn’t take it seriously. So it is important to seek help and support which will help in overcoming any mental problem easily.
