Tim Krass brings listeners Timeout For Mental Health, his new podcast helping men find help with understanding that often anger, violence, and substance abuse are frequently driven by unmanaged mental health issues and how to seek help.
“The key point with this book and podcast is that my harrowing, dramatic personal story weaves its way throughout the book. I lived with depression, suicide attempts, and have studied masculinity for more than thirty-seven years. My diagnosed condition of severe depressive disorder that is recurring was the reason that I abused marijuana, that I had the knife in my hand in order to slit my wrists and bleed out. This condition ruined my business and personal relationships and retarded my growth as a human being. My condition was a factor in causing my heart attack as well as expanding the size of my ego, which stopped me from having a relationship with God, which limits the quality of life, I believe.” – Tim Krass.
The WHO (World Health Organization) specifies that approximately 300 million suffer from depression worldwide, but that only half ever receive treatment. Too often men do not seek help for what are legitimate health issues. The stigma attached to mental health that exists within our society and our social norms do not lend to men seeking help. Statistically, of those who do receive treatment, 90% find an improvement to their issue (CNN).
Tim and his guests bring their personal experiences to the table to help other men begin their path to improving their mental health. Using past experiences with addiction and depression combined with his focus on positive masculinity, Tim strives to help other men understand that quite often their anger, hatred, violence, fighting, substance abuse can all be manifestations of unchecked mental health issues as well as an unhealthy view of what masculinity truly is. Both of these can lead to unhealthy relationships, difficulties at work, and even legal issues.
Tim Krass is here to help men understand his key points:
- Depression plays a serious health risk in a man’s life.
- Risky behavior, frequently driven by addictions, is often driven by unchecked depression stemming from internal feelings and emotions that are not being managed.
- How to deal with anger, hatred, violence, fighting, domestic violence, rape, and suicidal ideations.
- Today’s masculinity norms are a deterrent to a man’s health, happiness, and most relationships.
- What healthy masculinity really is and is not, and how to live life with honor, courage, and ruthless compassion.
- How to have trusting relationships with other men.
- *The utmost necessity to have the courage to ask for help.
- *Men are human and have feelings and emotions like everyone else. It is okay to share these feelings and emotions with the right people, at the right time, and in the right place.
- *Where to get help for mental health issues, depression, masculinity issues, and suicidal ideations.
- Life is in session 24/7/365, and any circumstance CAN be handled with help. Risky behaviors and a show of force is many times unnecessary and that you DON’T have to swallow your gun!
- A life of health and happiness is available for everyone.
