A Message of Support
Some words of advice from the Drexel Counseling Center:
Although they may not discuss it openly with friends or family, men may experience a great deal of stress and confusion related to ongoing problems. Some of these life concerns are specific to men, or they may be uniquely experienced by men. Some men may believe that it is “weak” to seek out professional help, but more and more of them are utilizing counseling to work through their problems, as they realize that it can be very helpful to talk confidentially with a non-judgmental, experienced professional.
Women can experience unique stressors and life experiences that can result in difficulty coping and maintaining a happy life. While they may have family and friends to speak with in an attempt to manage their concerns, women will also seek out professional help, utilizing counseling to work through their problems. As they realize that it can be very helpful to talk confidentially with a non-judgmental, experienced professional, they may find relief and increase their ability to have a satisfying and meaningful life.
