In fact, it can take courage to admit there’s a problem, and to find some help. Your mental health is like your physical health – the earlier you get onto it, the better.
A lot of things can negatively affect men’s mental and emotional wellbeing. Some common issues include: relationship problems, separation and divorce; financial stress; work-related pressures; unemployment or retirement; physical illness; social isolation; partner’s pregnancy and birth of a baby; and drug and alcohol use.
There are plenty of practical things men can do to help support their mental health including: eat well; get plenty of sleep; exercise regularly; spend time with your friends and family; talk about how you feel with people you trust; do activities you enjoy; and take time to relax.
