The Time Out for Mental Health Podcast is where we speak to sports figures about their experience with Mental Health issues related to Depression, Masculinity and Suicide. These sensitive topics are often swept under the rug as detailed in my new book, YOU DON’T HAVE TO SWALLOW YOUR GUN, A Simple Book for Men About Depression, Masculinity and Suicide. Men, in particular, need support to ask for help when they feel “OFF” and don’t know what is really going on with them. If they do not seek help, their behavior can turn dangerous, including, alcoholism, drug and pill addiction, anger, fighting, violence and in some cases death by suicide. On the podcast, we want to uncover these issues so men can live a happy and healthy life, even if they do suffer from Mental Health issues.
