In todays episode I sit down with Grainne Kelly to discuss men's mental health in what has been called "The Silent Crisis" of our generation.

We discuss why men in particular are struggling with their mental health and the pressures  they face in society as a whole.

Why you should be surrounding yourself with friends and family that you can be vulnerable with

Removing shame from the topic of mental health and encouraging men to reach out.

We discuss the healing power of therapy and how education plays an important role in equipping men with the tools they need to maintain good mental health

And finally we discuss  the resources that are available to men who want to talk to someone or get more information on mental health that are listed below.
