13 is lucky, I always say! And in this edition we talk about Men's Mental Health. We explore why men don't talk about their mental health and how common mental health issues are in men. What do we expect of men - and how does this effect you/them? And how can we start to stop the stigma of men and mental ill health!
In more detail, we look at depression, stress and men's eating disorders, and there are lots of links to help groups, more information, some fabulous footage from the BBC and YouTube, and much more. If you are not male, you will certainly know one, so we hope that you will all find this information useful.
We couldn't talk about men's mental health without touching on suicide too, as the statistics talk for themselves - three quarters of suicides in the UK are men - and this is a preventable death (in most situations).
We will also look at some tips on getting through the rest of 2020!
