Do men find it difficult to seek help?

Hi everyone!

Let’s talk about a topic that often lingers in the shadows but deserves a spotlight – the stigma around men seeking help. :star2: It’s no secret that there’s a societal pressure on guys to be the strong, silent type, but the reality is, men also face challenges and could use some support from time to time.

Have you noticed that seeking help is sometimes unfairly stigmatized for men? Whether it’s for mental health, personal struggles, or even just asking for directions, there seems to be this unwritten rule that asking for assistance somehow “challenges” their masculinity.

So, let’s break it down:

  1. Personal Experiences: Have you or someone you know ever felt hesitant to seek help because of societal expectations? How did you work through it, and what was the outcome?

  2. Changing the Narrative: How can we all work towards changing the narrative around men seeking help? What steps can we take to make it more acceptable and encourage open conversations about well-being?

Let’s use this space to share our thoughts, experiences, and ideas. It’s time to challenge stereotypes, support one another, and redefine what it means to be strong and resilient. :muscle::sparkles:

Looking forward to hearing your perspectives on this important conversation! :speaking_head::busts_in_silhouette:

As a guy, i find it difficult to talk about ny troubles. I sometimes want an apology but it is difficult.
