Over half of Australian men say no one has asked them how they are coping during COVID-19 and across the world, men are dying six years earlier than women, and for largely preventable reasons.
Chances are, a man close to you could be struggling with their mental health right now.
Men sometimes aren’t comfortable reaching out and opening up about life’s challenges – or they think they’ll be burdening their friends if they do.
If someone you care about seems to be going through a tough time (which many of us are in the current climate of COVID-19), they might not talk about it even if they want to. The first step in looking out for them is reaching out.✔️✔️✔️
The signs can be subtle: a friend who’s not sleeping, a colleague who’s lost interest, a man in your family who’s more irritable than normal…but spotting these signs can make all the difference. In fact, it could be lifesaving.
Spanos ElectriCool supports the movember.com movement in changing the face of men’s health on a global scale, focusing on mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
