One in eight men

We support Movember and male mental health

Maintaining a facade does not show strength. Bottling things up and forcing yourself to be okay is not a valid option. “Being a man” shouldn’t mean sacrificing your mental health. 

Due to several factors, including social norms, upbringing, and the role models we are presented with, some men’s mental health issues have gone unrecognised for a long time. On average, one in eight men will experience depression and one in five men will experience anxiety at some stage of their lives. Trying to “push through” and go along with it can only worsen your condition, increasing risks of depression and anxiety going unnoticed and untreated. 

If you struggle with mental health, tell someone. Seek help and you will find it.  

This month the Social Action Va’adot is supporting Movember!
