Men's Head's

Why Men's Head's ?

We all know that when it comes to asking for help men just aren’t as comfortable with this concept as women.  All our lives we are taught to be strong, mentally and physically. From an early age you hear things, such as: “Big boys don’t cry”, “If you don’t eat your breakfast you wont grow to be big and strong”.

But here is where the difficulty arises. From a guys perspective weakness has no actual definition. It includes anything from lack of physical strength to wearing glasses. At school kids are bullied for any sign of so called weakness.

How often do we turn on the news and hear of the impact that Lockdowns are having on young men?

In todays world increasing numbers of men are questioning their role in society, the whole concept of dating is a minefield. 

  • Do I need a signed contract from a lawyer before we go on a date?
  • I experimented at school, am I gay?
  • The only friends I have are online.

Men’s roles in this modern society are changing and that can be confusing and frightening. Even by high school age teenage boys are reporting being made to feel guilty for just being male. Men’s Head’s is hear to listen to what is going on for men. No judgement, No ridicule and No need to feel ashamed.

Simply give us a call and we can have a chat man to man. All conversations are confidential

Anxiety in Men

Men can tend to put off getting any kind of support, because they may think they’re supposed to be tough, self-reliant, and able to manage pain and take charge of situations. This can make it hard for men to acknowledge they have any health issues, let alone any that affect their social and emotional wellbeing.
 
One in 5 men will experience anxiety at some stage of their lives. In Australia, there are about 3,000 suicides each year. Around 75% of people who take their lives are men, with an average of almost 7 men taking their lives every day. 

It’s important to remember that anxiety and depression are conditions, not weaknesses, and effective treatments are available.

Anxiety is one of the most common health conditions in Australia. For men, anxiety is even more common than depression – 1 in 5 men will experience anxiety at some point. Like depression, anxiety can be a serious condition, but you don’t need to let it control you.

Anxious feelings are a normal reaction to a high-pressure situation – for example, meeting work deadlines, sitting exams or speaking in public. However, for some men these anxious feelings happen for no apparent reason or continue long after the stressful event has passed. These anxious feelings can seem uncontrollable and can make it hard to cope with daily life
