Limited Stock in ANZ – Backorders Available

A Mental Health Guide

Too many men are suffering with their emotional health issues in silence, and male suicide rates are high. 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 women. But society has placed a stigma on men’s mental health. Men have found it hard to reach out in the past because of a sense of shame that comes from our society. But men are changing. They are re-defining what it is to be ‘strong’, and are more open to understanding their emotions and reaching out for help.

The Changing Man: A Mental Health Guide explores a range of issues affecting men’s emotional health and wellbeing, and provides a collection of tried and tested tools to ensure no man suffers in silence again. From dealing with addiction, to bettering relationships, overcoming depression, working through sexuality concerns and realising that it is okay not to be okay, The Changing Man’s methods and knowledge may just change your emotional health for the better. No shame. No silence. No anger.
