#37 Why So Angry? Podcast: The Stigma of Men's Mental Health
The stigma of appearing weak and unstable is one that exhausts many-a-men in America. The pressures to perform at the highest level as leaders, without showing any flaws, has come as a long and weary obstacle that most adults have to face. This results in having to hide the pain and sadness to a point where it does more harm -- without seeking the attention needed. There are those that are trying to make a change for the better culturally. This episode talks about how openness isn't met with the warm reception needed -- validating the uphill battle those struggling must continuously face.
A bit of a disclaimer for this episode, a claim is stated that those with mental illness commit violence and crime. Mental illness is a serious issue in America, yet, it should not be confused with those who commit violence and crime have a mental illness. On the contrary, those suffering mental illness are in fact more likely to become a victim of domestic violence and abuse.
