Women are more likely to seek mental health treatment than men because of the stigma that it reflects a weak character. Depression and suicide are ranked as leading causes of death in men. In this episode, we explore:

  • Why men avoid seeking help and how we can create a culture of acceptance so that we aren’t stigmatizing personal growth
  • How men typically cope with emotional conflicts rather than get support
  • How you can help the men in your life face their inner life so they can have better relationships and quality of life
