Tired of dealing with the status quo, we decided to blow up the old guard by creating a mental health framework that starts men talking, keeps them interested, and gets results. And we’re not the only ones interested in making mental health more accessible for guys: below are the top innovations we see that are shaking up the world of men’s mental health:
“The experience I have had is that once you start talking [about experiencing a mental health struggle], you realize that actually you’re part of quite a big club.” – Prince Harry, HRH Duke of Sussex
“Whenever I have this discussion, I say that this negative experience, all this time in my life, has triggered a sequence of events that have made me much happier.“ – Marvin Sordell, former professional footballer, on seeking treatment for depression.
“I know I’m not alone and more importantly, to all those like me who overschedule, overthink, overwork, over-worry and over-everything, please know you’re not alone…We don’t talk enough about mental health and don’t do enough to destigmatize talking about it.” – Ryan Reynolds, Actor
If footballers, princes and Deadpool-alum are talking about their struggles with mental health and getting treatment, it’s okay for you to do it too. And when investors start supporting a movement in the billions and policymakers start disrupting the norm, it signifies there’ll be major changes ahead. So what does this mean for you? When you start talking about how you’re doing, you realize that being open and honest is a relief; that there are tools to be learned to cope; and that what once was a “struggle” with issues like depression and anxiety can actually be used to your advantage.
