Why men should go for therapy and why they don’t

Why do men give therapy the cold shoulder? Probably for the same reasons that most men won’t see doctors or other health specialists, writes Sean Swaby for the Goodmen Project.

According to the American Psychological Association, men are 25% less likely to see their health professional and almost 40% less likely to get their cholesterol checked.

When it comes to their psychological needs, men seek out therapy half as often as most women, said Ronald Levant, EdD, Professor of Psychology at the University of Akron. “Being a man can stack the odds against good health because many men have poor overall health behaviors and then we prefer to see our local bartender rather than our local doctor,” says Swaby.
