All men struggle, all men are vulnerable,
but most men struggle to be vulnerable.
Saving face rather than saving oneself:
The eternal dilemma of men
Men have difficulty expressing and admitting they are struggling.
This observation seems to belong to another generation and yet, it is still burning of topicality.
ON THEIR FRIENDS
MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES
Suffering in silence puts our mental health at risk. We isolate ourselves; we don’t dare to look for help. The vicious cycle of anxiety and depression sets in motion, which can, in extreme situations, lead to suicide. We feel that the conception of masculinity has evolved, that we are offered other models than the hyper-virile schemes of the past. However, the suicide rate among men has never been so high.
How can you help?
Sometimes, big problems can be tackled with simple solutions. Decide for yourself how you want to support Movember and your friends.
"Finding ways to have men feel comfortable and capable in opening up about their emotional lives is fundamental to ensuring their wellbeing. We should be reframing vulnerability as a true act of courage for men, well within their grasp, not an exception, but the rule. That means though that our friends, families and communities have to be equally open and ready to listen when guys share what’s going on for them."— Dr. Zac Seidler, Director of Mental Health Training, Movember.
Together, let’s give men the strength
to show their vulnerability
Let’s make this the generation
to no longer suffer in silence
