Modern life for men can feel fractured and inconsistent. Studies show that men experience and process feelings in the same way as women. Yet upbringing and social norms define the ways individuals understand and feel able to express their feelings.
The social prejudices faced by men in today’s society make it more difficult than ever for peace of mind and positive mental health, for example:
Work versus family life
The expectations of a partner
Understanding sexuality and gender role
The difficulty in playing an active role in your children’s lives
Accused of only being able to express feelings in limited and inappropriate ways such as anger
These social issues, and many more, make it increasingly difficult for men to feel comfortable in today’s society. Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK. Yet there remains a baseless and unhelpful stigma to seeking help.
