ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a report by Mind entitled "Get It Off Your Chest," which has pointed out that men have always resisted treatment for mental health problems and revealed that the recession is making matters worse. The report said that professionals should, therefore, take gender into account when discussing treatment options. Men are more likely to engage in treatment and support if it is based on activities such as walking or listening to music rather than talking and sharing their problems.
