Mental health and male stereotypes

Stereotypes associated with masculinity is arguably responsible for men feeling unable to discuss their feelings, especially in a time of hardship. Damon Klotz from Spur Projects is the Director of Operations of a new campaign called Soften Up. The campaign is designed to encourage men to ignore the ‘get over’ or ‘add a spoonful of concrete to water and…’ stereotypes and seek help before they become at risk of psychological damage.

Damon joined Tim Brunero to discuss male stereotypes and mental health.
