Mental Health for Men at iflow Psychology

Mental health for men is important. Mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, and substance abuse, can affect anyone, regardless of gender. However, in the past men were less likely to seek help for mental health issues due to social stigma and traditional expectations about masculinity.

It's important for men to recognise that it's okay to ask for help when they are struggling with men's mental health issues and to seek treatment if needed.

There are several things that we can do to promote mental health for men:

  1. Exercise regularly: Exercise has been shown to have positive effects on mental health, including reducing stress and improving mood.

  2. Eat a healthy diet: A healthy diet can help support overall physical and mental health.

  3. Get enough sleep: Lack of sleep can affect mental health, so it's important to get enough rest.

  4. Stay connected with others: Social connections are important for mental health. Make time to connect with friends and loved ones.

  5. Develop healthy coping strategies

  6. Address unhealthy coping strategies such as alcohol, use, gambling, etc.

  7. Take breaks from technology: It's important to unplug and disconnect from technology from time to time to reduce stress.

  8. Practice stress-reduction techniques: Techniques such as meditation, deep breathing, and yoga can help reduce stress and improve mental health.

  9. Seek professional help when needed.

If you are struggling with mental health issues, it's important to seek help.

What are Mens Mental Health Issues?

Mental health issues can affect anyone, regardless of gender. However, men may be more likely to experience certain mental health issues, such as:

  1. Depression: Men may be less likely to acknowledge or seek help for feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or lack of interest in activities.

  2. Anxiety: Men may experience anxiety as a result of work-related stress, financial pressures, or relationship problems.

  3. Substance abuse: Men may turn to drugs or alcohol as a way to cope with stress, anxiety, or depression, which can lead to substance abuse.

  4. Anger and aggression: Men may be more likely to express their emotions through anger or aggression, which can lead to problems in personal relationships and at work.

  5. Suicide: Men are more likely to die by suicide than women. This may be due to social norms that discourage men from seeking help or expressing their emotions.

It is important for men to seek help if they are experiencing any of these mental health issues. Treatment options may include therapy, medication, or a combination of both.

What are Signs of Mental Illness in Men?

There are many potential signs of mental illness in men, and it's important to note that every individual is different and may experience different symptoms.


Some common signs of mental illness in men may include:

  1. Changes in mood: Men may experience sudden or significant changes in mood, such as feeling very depressed or anxious, or experiencing extreme highs and lows.

  2. Changes in behavior: Men may exhibit changes in behavior, such as withdrawing from social activities, exhibiting reckless or risky behavior, or experiencing sudden changes in appetite or sleep patterns.

  3. Difficulty concentrating or making decisions: Mental illness can make it difficult for men to focus or make decisions.

  4. Lack of energy or motivation: Men may feel fatigued or have a lack of motivation or energy, even when there is no physical cause.

  5. Difficulty managing emotions: Men may have difficulty controlling their emotions, such as feeling overwhelmed by negative emotions or experiencing inappropriate emotional responses to situations.

  6. Changes in thinking patterns: Mental illness can cause men to have abnormal thinking patterns, such as racing thoughts, delusions, or hallucinations.

  7. Physical symptoms: Mental illness can also cause physical symptoms, such as changes in appetite or weight, headaches, or digestive issues.


If you are concerned that you or someone you know may be experiencing symptoms of mental illness, it is important to speak with a mental health professional for a proper evaluation and treatment.

What Age Does Mental Illness Start in Men?

Mental illness can start at any age, but the onset of some mental illnesses is more common at certain ages. For example:

  • Childhood and adolescence: Mental illnesses such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety disorders, and mood disorders (e.g., depression) can start in childhood or adolescence.

  • Late adolescence and early adulthood: This is a time when many people may experience their first episode of a mental illness such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.

  • Older age: Some mental illnesses, such as anxiety and mood disorders, may become more common in older age. Dementia and other cognitive disorders can also occur in older age.

It's important to note that mental illness can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, or background. If you are concerned about your mental health or the mental health of someone you know, it's important to seek help from a qualified mental health professional.

How Do Men Cope With Mental Health?

Mental health is an important issue for people of all genders. It's important for men to take care of their mental health and seek help when needed. Here are some ways that men can cope with mental health challenges:

  1. Talk about it: It's important to express your feelings and get support from others. This can be through therapy, talking with friends and family, or joining a support group.

  2. Take care of your physical health: Exercise, eat a healthy diet, and get enough sleep. These things can help improve your overall well-being and may also help with mental health challenges.

  3. Practice relaxation techniques: Try activities like meditation, yoga, or deep breathing to help reduce stress and promote relaxation.

  4. Seek professional help: If you're struggling with mental health challenges and are finding it difficult to cope, it may be helpful to seek professional help from a therapist or counselor.

  5. Find healthy ways to cope with stress: Find healthy ways to cope with stress, such as taking breaks, finding time for hobbies and activities you enjoy, and setting boundaries with work and other responsibilities.

It's important to remember that it's okay to seek help and that mental health challenges are common and treatable. If you're struggling with mental health issues, don't be afraid to reach out for support from iflow Psychology.
