At any one time, it is believed that one in eight men (12.5%) are diagnosed with a common mental illness, such as anxiety, depression, panic disorder, or obsessive-compulsive disorder.

The reasons men don’t talk about the things they “bear”:

‘I’ve learned to deal with it’ (40%)

‘I don’t wish to be a burden to anyone (36%)

‘I’m too embarrassed’ (29%)

‘There’s a negative stigma around this type of thing’ (20%)

‘I don’t want to admit I need support’ (17%)

‘I don’t want to appear weak (16%)

‘I have no one to talk to’ (14%)

3 signs a man is battling his demons

1. They work a lot, they keep themselves busy all of the time.

2. They stay up late and distance themselves from other people

3. They use the phrases, I’m good, I’m OK,  or I’m alright. With no emotion.

Please know that the Circle of Trust isn’t just here at the beat down.

If you are willing and can mean it from your heart, repeat after me:

In your darkest hour

When the demons come

Call on me brother

And we will fight them together!

Please keep an eye out for your friends and sad clowns in your life.  Let’s pray!
