What stops men from seeking mental health help? Their ego:

Experts said more women suffer from depression than men. It could have something to do with human biology, but fewer men seek treatment because of their principals about being a man.

    Perhaps denial is a useful way to deal with a chronic (mental) illness.

    Do men present more reluctantly or later or with more severe symptoms than women, or do women present readily, sooner and with less severe symptoms. Are men too stubborn to seek treatment for legitimate disease, or are women to eager to seek treatment for trivial or less significant disease?

    Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt.

    We men are uncomfortable with illness in general, let alone the heavily stigmatised nature of psychiatric illnss.
