Statistics show that men don’t struggle with mental health issues as much as women, and that when they do, they don’t seek out help. However, statistically men are much more likely to die by suicide, are much more likely to struggle with substances, and much more likely to end up in the criminal justice system. That information reveals that men struggle just as much as women with mental health, it just shows up differently.
At Takoma Therapy we recognize that good therapy is often gender neutral, but sometimes there is a need to discuss issues with someone who reflects back something of you. We have several male therapists who take a special interest in working on men's mental health. If you are interested in finding out more, contact our intake coordinator to set up an appointment with Mark Hollingshead, Stephen Mann, or Paul Rahn.
