Men are less likely than women to seek mental health help for depression, substance addiction, and stressful life events, including anxiety and trauma. There are many reasons for it, including an unwillingness to talk, social norms, existing stigma, and downplaying symptoms.
But “I’m fine” can only get someone so far—especially since men are significantly more at risk of attempting suicide than women. Just because it’s difficult to open up about mental health doesn’t mean that anyone should struggle in silence.
In this session, Christopher M. Palmer, MD, discusses why men’s mental health is becoming a bigger crisis, ways to talk to your loved ones about mental health, and answers audience questions about the value of destigmatizing men’s mental health.
