Men Face Unique Issues in Counselling

Dr. Mike Dadson’s’ counseling experience and academic research identifies “men face unique barriers when it comes to accessing mental health care”. “Cultural messaging can be a major obstacle standing in the way of emotional well-being and vulnerability yet when men come together as a unified force, there is potential for positive outcomes” adds Dr. Dadson.

“It’s crucial for men to understand that reaching out for assistance is a testament to their inner strength, not a display of weakness. Mental health challenges don’t discriminate based on gender, and it requires bravery to confront and conquer them,” emphasizes Dr. Michael Dadson. “In the right environment for men, they can fully address their psychological well-being whether that is in the context of relationships, career, substance abuse/addictions, trauma or depression and anxiety” adds Michael Dadson.

Counselling tailored for men is a specialized field due to several distinct factors. Michael Dadson points out that “Men and women encounter diverse experiences and obstacles concerning mental health and emotional stability. Men, in particular, confront distinct societal pressures and norms that can influence their mental well-being and their approach to seeking assistance.”
