Men’s Mental, LLC (@mens.mental) is an organization striving to break down the stigmas and barriers surrounding the MENtal health of our male survivors around the country.
Throughout a male’s life, we are commonly told that, “men don’t cry,” “man up,” “suck it up,” or “grow a pair,” and these predetermined notions of men being unable to show pain or weakness has essentially forced us into a habit of suppressing our emotions and being afraid to speak up or seek help when we truly need it.
In our world today, men are 3.5x more likely than women to die by suicide and in the United States, 1 in 10 of men have had experiences with anxiety or depression. Even more staggering than that, in 2019, almost 70% of suicides within the US were carried out by men. This is why our goal at Men’s Mental is to normalize these issues within our everyday society while bringing awareness to the fact that it is okay to not be okay, and therefore seek the necessary help to improve. We are providing a platform for men around the country to witness other men’s mental health experiences or stories in order to ensure that nobody ever feels alone in their struggles.
At mensmental.org, you will be able to see our online store where we will begin selling our clothing while giving back a percentage of our monthly profits to numerous mental health associations around the country. On our website, we will be providing our customers with an opportunity to shop for movingly modern apparel while also being connected to a therapist. With this fusion between sparking conversations, igniting awareness, through clothing, within our youth and our role models, and creating this platform that gives our men the ability to be heard. Join our MENtal Health movement today. -MM
