Welcome back Warriors! For day 3 of suicide prevention awareness. This episode I welcome two titans and veterans of the show. We have the incredible Tiffany Werhner and the mighty Brian Cardoza.
This show is all about having an empowering chat about Mental Health, masculinity and at this moment suicide in men. Together we are the strongest force for change.
Now some of you may disagree with what we are about to say, but my guests believe as I do that the dialogue around Mental Health needs to shift forward. Men are dying at an alarming rate, something somewhere isn't working.
This episode is all about the courage problem in Mental Health, and why calling people courageous for speaking out may be doing more harm than good. We touch upon trauma and abuse, depression and anxiety, suicide and suicide ideation. It may sound incongruous but we also share some laughs.
This is sensitive topic but, we need to start enquiring into what's not working so everyone of us can educate ourselves and make a difference
As ever I am here if you are struggling and need someone to reach out to. You are my brother and I see you! You need never apologise to me for feeling the way you do nor must you ever suffer in silence.

If you're scrolling through facebook and you're feeling alone come to the Men Helping Men Facebook group and I will welcome you in to our community and our brotherhood.
