I work with over 90 men a week offering both individual and group therapy. I have become quite comfortable talking about men's issues and I've always been an advocate for men's health.
I find that many of the major concerns men have are things that they feel that they can't talk to others about particularly issues related to physical or sexual health. Physical and sexual health significantly impact relationships and can impact your own personal well-being.
In the years that I've practiced I've noticed the impact of a man's mood on his overall health. Alarmingly, men who struggle with chronic bad moods are more at risk for physical and sexual health issues. In particular, pro-longed feelings of anger and aggression are the most detrimental to men's health. Overtime, the affects of anger on the body can lead to a poor self-image and increased conflict in relationships.
