Alright guys, June is here and you know what that means? It's officially Men's Mental Health Month! We understand men often deal with the pressures of life – stress, anxiety, and you name it – differently than women. We tend to keep things bottled up, avoid talking about it, and sometimes (let's face it) act like we're invincible superheroes who don't need help. But guess what? That approach isn't healthy, and it's not true.

Research shows that in the United States in 2022, an estimated 19.7% of men had a mental illness in the past year. Men are often less likely than women to seek help for mental health problems due to stigma. A study by the Priory Group found that 77% of men polled have suffered from symptoms of common mental health conditions such as anxiety, stress or depression, but 40% of men have never spoken to anyone about their mental health 

As a trusted digital & product engineering company with a ton of experience in crafting healthcare solutions and building top-notch mental health apps, we're here to break down the walls and get you talking. This June, we're all about encouraging you to man up and talk it out about your mental health.

Why Should We Care About Men's Mental Health?

This Men's Mental Health Month, it's especially important to acknowledge the reality: men are way less likely to seek help for mental health issues compared to women. This silence can lead to a snowball effect of problems, including:

  • Stress and Anxiety on overdrive

    Life throws curveballs, and sometimes those curveballs feel like they're coming at you a mile a minute. Bottling up those anxieties can make them even worse.

  • Strained Relationships

    When you're struggling internally, it can be tough to connect with the people you care about. Talking things through can help strengthen your relationships.

  • Substance Abuse

    Sometimes, people turn to alcohol, drugs, or other unhealthy coping mechanisms to deal with emotional pain. There are better ways, guys.

  • Suicidal Thoughts

    This is a serious one, and it's more common than you might think. If you're having these thoughts, please reach out for help. You are not alone.

Let's Break the Stigma: It's Okay to Not Be Okay

Look, fellas, we all go through rough patches. Work deadlines looming, family drama, financial worries – life can be overwhelming. During Men's Mental Health Month, it's completely normal to feel down or stressed sometimes. The key is not to bottle it all up. Talking about what's bothering you is a sign of strength, not weakness.

Here are some tips for opening up about your mental health

  • Find a listening ear

Talk to a trusted friend or family member. Sometimes just venting can be a huge weight off your shoulders.

  • Seek professional help

Therapy isn't just for people in crisis. A therapist can equip you with tools and strategies to manage stress, anxiety, and other mental health challenges. There's no shame in reaching out for professional support.

  • Join a support group

Connecting with other men who are going through similar experiences can be incredibly helpful. You'll realize you're not alone, and you can learn from each other.

  • Download a mental health app

If you're hesitant to open up to someone right away, there are fantastic mental health apps available. These apps can provide self-assessment tools, guided meditations and exercises, and even connect you with mental health professionals anonymously.
