Absent Minded

Men’s mental health problems are clear.  Globally, the rate of suicide in men is more than twice as high as in women.  Men consume nearly four times more pure alcohol per capita than women.  Many men attach stigma to mental health issues and often do not seek help.  Men may also ‘externalise’ their distress through behaviour that is anti-social or aggressive.  Yet, at the same time, common mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety, often remain under-diagnosed and under-treated in men.  Global Action on Men’s Health has just released a report titled 'Absent Minded' which examines the treatment of men in mental health policy worldwide.  See the report and the launch video at: https://gamh.org/absent-minded
