The Better Man Journey | Mental Health For Men | Freedom | Self Improvement
About This Show
Follow me (and others) on the journey to become a better man. Hi, I'm Paul... and the idea behind this Podcast is to be as open and honest with you as I can. This is a personal insight alongside regular conversations into dealing with mental health as men, creating more freedom in our lives and becoming the best version of ourselves we can be. In 2009, I lost my Dad suddenly to suicide. I fell quickly into depression, and this Podcast is an insight into the journey I've been on since that tragic day. I'm a business owner, a Husband, a Father of 2, but like you... I'm on the journey to become better. You can follow along...

My Dad Died Of A Health Condition... A 'Mental' One

The other day I shared this on Instagram...

My Dad died of a health condition. Not a physical one we or a doctor could spot... a mental one.
But my Dad wasn't 'mental'. He was an engineer, ran a part time physiotherapy business, he had a psychology degree, he read self help books and even used meditation occasionally.
Around him, he had his childhood sweetheart as his wife, two sons, caring parents and loving friends.
Physically? His physical health was faultless. Before he died he won the 1500m veteran British championships. But the health condition that killed him was depression. It was suicide. It was burying emotional pain for 40+ years and breaking down.
You can't see mental health, but it doesn't mean we should ignore it. It doesn't mean we can't treat it.
I haven't posted on here for a while because I've been feeling unmotivated and uninspired with the 'fashion' posts I share. Protecting my 'highlight reel' of posts that is a far cry from reality. But from this point forward, I'll be sharing my thoughts on mental health. The stigma. The fact that suicide is the biggest killer of men right now. Not dictating, just documenting. My personal experiences.
My Dad felt like he had to suffer in silence, but it's about time we changed our perspective on mental health. It's time we saw it as something we can talk about. Not something we should be ashamed of.
Vulnerability is strength. It's not a weakness.
In this episode I dive deeper into the reasons behind why I shared it.
I hope it helps...
