Millions of people in the U.S. are affected by mental illness each year, and men are no exception.
At Sunstone, we understand that men face unique challenges in life, yet it may be difficult to ask for help if you have been conditioned to suppress your emotions and “tough it out.”
Because men seek treatment for mental illnesses, such as depression, less often, they succumb to mental illness at a starkly higher rate than women. While women are two times more likely than men to experience depression, suicide rates are significantly higher for men.
Depression affects both men and women, but studies have shown that the symptoms of depression can be different. For example, depression may manifest as anger, irritability, or aggression in males, while in many women, it’s expressed as an overwhelming sadness. [excerpted from vailfoundation.org]
Reaching out for help, practicing self-awareness, and mindfully expressing emotions are among the bravest behaviors men can exhibit. Sunstone’s compassionate team of male counselors is ready to help you overcome challenges, be more vulnerable, and set an example of healthy masculinity for yourself, your family, and your community.
