How are you?
Health begins between the ears. If it's not right there, it doesn't matter how much you can bench-press, how much you earn or how often you get laid, you won't feel good.
This section of malehealth lets you read all about the key issues in men's mental health today at your pace and as you want to. Nothing flash, just the facts in the words of the men who know: men who have experienced mental health problems themselves. Your comments are welcome but they're not necessary. Just take what you need and get on with your life. This isn't Facebook.
If you're not feeling great, you're not alone. One in six people - nearly 10 million people across the UK - will experience depression or another mental health problem at any one time.
But that doesn't mean it's easy to talk about it. We all know it isn't - including the men talking on this website. It can be difficult to put how you're feeling into words. This section of malehealth is designed to help you do that. You can be strong without being silent. In fact, strength is often to be found in talking. Without words, mental health problems can kill.

Men's Health Week 2013: Let's Talk About It
The way we feel was the theme for Men's Health Week 2013.
The MHF highlighted that men are FAR MORE likely to kill themselves than women (3/4 of all suicides are male) yet we're FAR LESS likely to get treatment for depression or similar problems. These are the posters we used.
