Man Therapy

26 October 2015

Man Therapy seeks to empower men to take action/ownership of their mental health and overall wellness by increasing help-seeking behavior.

Man Therapy helps men connect the dots between issues they are having - such as depression, anger, anxiety, stress, divorce, unemployment, PTSD, substance abuse or other personal and mental health issues – and encourages them to do something about it.

Man Therapy can help men, and their loved ones, recognize early warning signs in their life before they reach a state of crisis.

The goals of Man Therapy include:

  1. Create social change among men and the general population about mental health and overall wellness.
  2. Empower men to take action/ownership of their mental health and overall wellness by increasing help seeking behavior
  3. Reduce suicidal thoughts, attempts and death among men (long term).

Man Therapy reshapes the conversation, using humor to cut through stigma and tackle issues like depression, divorce, substance use and suicidal thoughts head on, "the way a man would do it.”  Man Therapy utilizes an early intervention approach to get men to seek help sooner.
