Gateway Counseling found that:
While over 14% of men in the US experience a mental health issue, very few of them get help. Only 60% of depressed men go for treatment, but over 72% of women obtain help. And while 9% of women make use of outpatient mental health services, only 5% of men do so.
Due to social norms, men are less likely to seek mental health help. Maria More gives a few tips on combating these statistics.
- As told by Dr. Ian, one major key to overall health (even for your mind) is exercise.
- Don’t doubt the power of recreational activities as a form of therapy! Whether video games or sports, everyone needs a little “me time” for a mental break.
- As women, sharing resources and creating safe environments can help the men in your life feel more liberated in caring for their mental health.
