A Mental Health Guide
An empowering and informative mental health guide that addresses the stigmas surrounding men’s mental health, and gives men the tools to break through them.
Too many men are suffering with their emotional health issues in silence, and male suicide is still one of the biggest causes of death in men under 50. Men are affected by everyday stress, high workloads, anxiety and depression, loss of confidence or identity, relationship breakdowns, family disruption, addictions and trauma — just the same as anyone else. But society has placed a stigma on men’s mental health, making it difficult for them to reach out for help.
Thankfully, times are changing. Masculinity no longer means suffering in silence, and more and more men are opening up about their emotions. The Changing Man aims to help men along the path to addressing their mental wellbeing.
In a changing and developing world, we need advice that keeps up. The Changing Man is just that: a realistic and hopeful manual for the men of today to address their mental health without shame.
