Let’s be honest about male stress

9th June 2016

13th June: Today is the start of Men’s Health Week, organised by the Men’s Health Forum with the theme ‘Stress and how to beat it’.

PAPYRUS urges men not to hide stress. But it can be stressful being a man these days, a fact confirmed by callers to the charity’s HOPELineUK helpline services. We hear about stress from loss, from relationships, from work, from studying, from friendships, family and money.

Too many perceive that men need to show strength through being silent and stoic, but stress overload, even from what might seem trivial day-to-day events, can seriously damage our health.

PAPYRUS urges men to talk and share stressful issues and offers tips to prevent them becoming overwhelming. We urge you to check them out. https://www.papyrus-uk.org/help-advice/mens-health-week-2016

Suicide is the biggest killer of young people - male and female - under 35 in the UK. Many thousands more attempt or contemplate suicide, harm themselves or suffer alone, afraid to speak openly about how they are feeling.

We are the national charity for the prevention of young suicide. We draw from the experience of many who have been touched personally by young suicide across the UK and speak on their behalf in our campaigns and in our work. We need more people who share our aims to join us to strengthen our voice - together we can save young lives.
