June is men’s mental health month I Dove Men+Care creates platforms for men to be able to engage

June is men’s mental health month and surveys show that women are diagnosed more than men with mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety while men don’t speak about their feelings until it is too late.

According to the South African Society of Psychiatrists men underplay the distress caused by these symptoms drowning their depression and anxiety with poor coping behaviours, increasing their risk of the anxiety or depression to go unrecognised and untreated. To combat this, Dove Men+Care has created platforms for men to be able to discuss, share their experiences and help educate each other through their different experiences. This is to help other men out there to show care to themselves.
