Men’s Health Week

15th – 21st June 2020

Research shows that males are equally vulnerable to mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. But, men with mental illness mostly remain unrecognised, undiagnosed, and untreated. 

Research suggests that men generally are more likely to keep their feelings in and less willing than women to seek help for mental illness.

Also, studies show that a lot of men suffer from complications closely linked to depression, like at the same time, the suicide rates among males continue to grow disturbingly. Many studies also suggest that masculinity stereotypes and mental illness stigma govern the way men approach their inner life, unwilling to explore and accept their emotions and address their mental health issues.
