My message for men everywhere is: As men, we need to break down the stigma that seeking medical help means you’re weak, dysfunctional, or incomplete. Men’s health issues, both physical and mental, are very real and very prevalent in our society today and too many people struggle silently because they don’t feel they can talk about their problems, or don’t know who to talk to about their problems. As men, we can reverse this negative stigma by changing our behaviors and attitudes towards our health. At an individual level, this starts with not being afraid to show vulnerability and having the courage to speak openly and candidly about your health with others.
