Save our Men Now - Five Concerns Men Don't Talk About that is killing them inside

Every 40 seconds, one person commits suicide worldwide. Men often commit suicide because they do not have the habit of talking about problems or asking for help.

So what are the issues that men should talk about openly?

Conflict between social media life and reality

Social media can have a huge impact on mental health.

A study by the University of Pennsylvania in the United States shows that individuals who use social media are more likely to suffer from mental illness and anxiety. The result may be the opposite.

People who began using social media less often felt less lonely and depressed, according to the study. According to Melissa Hunt, the study's co-ordinator and mental health expert, men are less likely to do what they see on social media.

The thrilling and exciting experiences we see on social media are often unrealistic and describe what we want to be or what we want to do.

According to Professor Oscar Ibara, a psychologist at the University of Michigan, people like to compare what they have with what they have.

"They start comparing in a way they don't even know. When do people have fun watching me? People ask the same question when they go abroad for work. This can lead to depression and anxiety.


According to a large-scale study conducted by the BBC's Wellcam Collection Fund, young people between the ages of 16 and 24 feel lonely.

A 2017 European study found that men in particular find it difficult to break free from loneliness.

Women do not have to meet to keep dating. Just talking on the phone about your day may be enough. For men, though, it is unthinkable to talk on the phone for long periods of time.

In fact, men must meet to maintain their friendship. They gather to watch football or go to a bar. If they do not do these things, they are more likely to become lonely and anxious.

Loneliness can lead to insomnia and even suicide.


Numerous studies indicate that crying is a panacea for anxiety and depression. But men and women do not always love each other. For men, crying is considered a failure.

According to a study in the United Kingdom, 55% of teens between the ages of 18 and 24 believe that crying is degrading.

According to Coleman Odriscolle, head of the Australian charity that focuses on suicide, men are being told from an early age that they should not express their feelings and that crying is a weakness.

'' Cry when we should. It always has the potential to reduce anxiety and depression, ”said Coleman Odriscol.


42% of men in the UK believe that they should have a higher income than their partners or wives.

And there are many people who think that men should take care of their home. Money and money worries are on the rise.

According to a 2015 European study, the rate of suicide increases by 0.79 percent every year.

Physical profiles

It is often thought that only women are concerned about their physical appearance. But the reality is far from over.

Josh finished third in a TV series in England. He believes that physical activity and anxiety have contributed to his condition.

On the beaches and in other places, when I walk naked above my waist, he sees how men and women look at me. Maybe there are people who tell me I have a body like you," he said.

Men always want to be better than other men. Their physical appearance is the most important.
