Read this great article from Buzzfeed here.
It’s not only brilliant for highlighting the fact that it is very difficult for men who suffer with depression and/or anxiety. They are under pressure to maintain this ‘manly’ persona that society has made people believe in. They shouldn’t show any weakness, or any humanity apparently!
We need more men to come out and talk about their mental health problems. The rate of suicide is high among young males and we could improve this by being more open and honest.
The article also gives some great advice and a very realistic and honest account of how it feels to have depression. A good one for people to read who know people who suffer as well.
Thanks Buzzfeed and whoever was brave enough to write this 🙂
