ARP 348 - Bear Grylls App and Men's Mental Health Resources

In 2024, of the things we have to change is the active cultural block against men seeking mental health treatment. We don't have time for it. 

All hands on deck or at least pull the ropes trying to point the ship in the right direction. 

This episode is a little different because it is resource focus. Go to to learn about therapy or to Heads Up Guys to learn about stress. Or use the Mettle app from Bear Grylls.

What I don't want you to do is suffer, grit your teeth and take it. Because that is causing some good people to reconsider their time on the planet. 

If the assholes won't go, why should you?

Just saying.

In this episode, a look at a few men's mental health resources.
