Man Therapy® is giving men a resource they desperately need. A resource to help them with any problem that life sends their way, something to set them straight on the realities of suicide and mental health, and in the end, a tool to help put a stop to the suicide deaths of so many of our men.
Farm First helps take some of the stress out of farming. Our staff are here to help you both navigate the resources you need to solve farm issues and to provide you with confidential personal support so that you don't have to sort out these issues alone.
Improving Mental Wellness for Men
Men are much more likely than women to die by suicide in Vermont and in the country. Among the reasons for this are that they are more likely than women to use firearms in attempting suicide and less likely than women to ask for help and access mental health support. They are also subject to a variety of cultural expectations that can contribute to risk.
To reduce suicide risk and improve mental wellness, individuals and organizations can combat the societal stigma for men seeking treatment, reduce access to lethal means like firearms when people are in crisis, and support peer mental health networks.
