Men’s Mental Health Month

Ever heard of men’s mental health month? Well, it’s June. Mental Health June – led by male influencers who are using their platforms to break down stigmas, promote open conversations, and support mental wellness among men. These influencers, from diverse backgrounds and industries, are leveraging their reach to challenge traditional notions of masculinity and emphasize the importance of psychological health care.


The issue at hand

Male’s well-being has often been sidelined due to societal pressures and stereotypes that dictate how they should think, feel, and behave. Traditional masculinity norms discourage males from expressing vulnerability or seeking help, leading to a significant mental health crisis among males and young boys.

According to the American Psychological Association, males are less likely to receive treatment compared to females. Therefore, let us use this month to promote male well-being! Here are two influencers who can help us navigate through this month and allow us to explore psychological well-being.
