Mental, The World’s First Mental Health App Created For Men
Stress kills. Right now, stress is at an all-time high: Three out of four adults experience levels of stress that impact their mental health, and according to the American Psychological Association, more than a quarter of all adults say that most days, they are so stressed, they can’t even function.
For men in particular, their utilization of current mental health resources is alarmingly low in relation to their actual needs. While more than 20,000 mental health and self-help apps exist, few if any resonate with men. Most apps focus heavily on nurturing and emotional vulnerability, and men are not benefiting. The lack of meaningful support for men has real repercussions, as males make up 83% of deaths by suicide. It’s time to focus on creating more accessible resources tailored to men’s needs.
