Join Men Support Groups for Healing and Advice
Our society places men and women into specific roles with expected outcomes for each group. A man is taught the unacceptability of the release of emotions. For example, it is more socially acceptable for a woman to cry than a man. Having an environment in which to express emotion and discuss men’s roles in our society in a safe environment is crucial. Men support groups have popped up around the country to fill this need.
Financial burdens and everyday life stressors can be overwhelming for anyone. Men have been programmed to “be tough” and to hold their thoughts and emotions inside of themselves. This mentality can be very detrimental to a man’s physical, spiritual and mental health. Because this mentality is ingrained in our society, some men may be reluctant to attend a support group. Upon becoming familiar with the group, however, most men will lose all hesitation about attending since there is value to the conversations that he can apply to his life.
By joining a support group for men, they can address stressors that many men experience. It is a safe place where a man can voice his concerns for his wellness and growth. A support group listens, educates, provides advice and is emotionally “there” for him. Relationship issues, past trauma, self-esteem, life changes, work problems, addictive behaviors, anger management and parenting are among the topics that are addressed in men support groups. The meetings are normally facilitated by either a counselor or someone who is knowledgeable about the topic at hand.
In conjunction with a support group, participating in integrative classes such as meditation and yoga are beneficial. These types of activities bridge the mind-body connection and can help to ease stress in life. Continuing on a journey of healthy activities and support brings about wellness in a man’s life.
