During these trying times, two factors are essential to maintaining a man’s mental well-being: getting and giving help.
Both are challenges. Despite the benefits of getting and giving support on their physical and mental health, men are hamstrung by outdated stereotypes and social hesitancies.

Alternatively, the application of some basic coping skills, whether coupled with professional help or not, offer a pathway to a healthy lifestyle and the happiness we all seek, even as the COVID-19 pandemic has created one of the most difficult periods in our lives.
