Men’s mental health is an extremely neglected thing in the public consciousness.
The biggest problem I think, is that men are raised not to show their emotions, because we expect to be looked down upon. While women are expected to cry and show their feelings, and they get sympathy for it, that's why the male suicide rate is 4 times higher than females.
Young boys are stigmatized to be aggressive at schools, which leads to a higher number in males dropping out of schools.
When it comes to mental health treatment, women still have it much harder.
Sometimes I really feel like going. it comes across my mind quite a lot and it’s like I want to be here but I don’t want to. Who knows what the future brings.
Depression feels like your trapped in your mind, an empty void of your own
