It’s no surprise that November, Movember and No-Shave November are becoming more popular this year. Men all over the world have been growing a beard in an effort to raise awareness for prostate cancer with testicular or mental illness as well!
The concept behind these movements is to go shave-free for the entire month of November. Then, at the end of your thirty-day challenge, you donate money that would have been spent on shaving towards organizations that educate about cancer and suicide prevention as well as save lives from a distance!
Being informed about the symptoms, risk factors and available tests can empower you to lead a healthier life. It’s also important that men be aware of their health concerns so they don’t fall through the cracks in society! This month we’ve compiled some information on what might ail one brother today – just remember there are many resources out there for anyone who needs help or advice with any type illness/injury .
Being smart about our bodies starts from within: know yourself well enough before trying new things because too often people think “It won’t happen TO ME.”
Today at Concord Hair Restoration, we’d like to focus on men’s mental health. Not only is stress a contributing factor for hair loss, like other health conditions such as heart disease and high blood pressure, but stress has also been linked with increased rates of alopecia (hair loss). With over 100 million people experiencing symptoms from anxiety disorders every year – including obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder(PTSD).
What are the most important things to know about men’s mental health?
Mental illness can affect anyone, but it impacts males more than females.
Around 1 in 4 adults will experience a problem with their mind at some point during their lifetime – that’s around 2 million guys!
Difficult things happen to all of us including difficulties when dealing with work or finances; these challenges could lead someone down an unhealthy path if untreated for long enough though so make sure you get help as soon as possible because there is nothing wrong(or weak) bout seeking professional treatment.
Depression is a common mental health condition that can be treated with medication and therapy. While men experience depression at higher rates than women, they are less likely to seek help for it because of social stigma associated with being seen as weak or vulnerable gender stereotypes perpetuated by media outlets such as television shows which portray men struggling alone in their bedroom without female companionship when actually this isn’t true.
If you’re feeling down, it can seem like the world is against you. But don’t worry! There are a few things that will help take care of your mental health: do more activities and spend time with friends and loved ones; talk about what has been going on in life so we know how best to support one another – especially if someone seems overwhelmed by their situation.
Supporting a friend or loved one:
You may have heard that talking, listening, and being there for someone going through a difficult time can be lifesaving. If you know someone is having trouble with their mental health or coping skills, ask how they’re doing; this will allow the person to open up without feeling like venting out all of those feelings on social media (or elsewhere). You should also consult these tips if want quick advice about what words might help when discussing your friend/family member’s emotional well-being.
If you think that your friend or family member is in danger of harming themselves, the best thing to do would be to reach out immediately. You can call a local San Diego crisis line at 619-552-4357 or if they need more help than just suicide prevention counseling there are several other organizations that provide free local mental health support groups and mental health treatment services such as The National Suicide Prevention Line at 1 866 273 2255.
