Men's Mental Health: Ending the Stigma

Men's Mental Health: Ending the Stigma

“Real men don’t do x, y, and z.”

Have you ever heard something similar?

From crying and showing emotion to how to dress, walk, and talk, boys and men are all too familiar with gendered stereotypes. When it comes to mental health issues, boys and men also deal with stigma, too.

After all, it’s not “manly” or “strong” to talk about mental health…or is it?

At Cypress Counseling & Behavioral Center, we say it’s time to kick this stigma to the curb!

If mental health issues are interfering with your day-to-day life, it may be time to see a professional. Somebody who gets you. Our Cypress, Texas boutique-style therapy practice offers services tailored and personalized to each client, teen boys and adult men included. Unfortunately, according to Psychology Today, studies show that males are FAR less likely to seek help for a mental health issue.

Let’s change that!

Reasons Why Men Don’t Talk About Mental Health

If you broke your arm playing football, you would see a doctor, right?

The hospital would do x-rays, make a cast, and heal your bones.

Yet mental issues (such as anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, etc.) are often shrugged off and ignored. Or worse, buried deep down. But just like a sports injury, mental health issues sometimes need the help of a professional who is trained in therapy and who is willing to work by your side.

That’s where the team at Cypress Counseling & Behavioral Center comes in!

Many men don’t want to talk about mental health because:

· They are worried about feeling like a “burden”

· They think their family or friends will judge them for being “weak”

· They are embarrassed

· They believe their problems are too complicated to fix

· They fear repercussions at school or work

· They don’t know how to ask for help

Here’s the thing though, guys…

There are millions of people working hard to end the stigma around men’s mental health, including us. Our highly trained Licensed Professional Counselors offer one-on-one sessions where stigma simply doesn’t exist.

Toxic masculinity? Nope.

Toughen-up attitude? Nuh-uh.

Suffering in silence? Never.
